That is a bug, not sure how it went overlooked for so long :( It is 
present as far back as 0.08112 (2009), likely earlier.

Because of the nontrivial possibility of negative impact of changing 
something so fundamental, I have to think this through before going forward.

In the meantime an easy workaround for you is to add the following to a 
base result class (this is a hack, a real fix will materialize later):

   sub store_column {
     delete $_[0]->{_inflated_column}{$_[1]};

Sorry for not being able to offer anything better at the moment :(
