"cancel and error end activity throws exception"

I use jBPM 4.4 and created a simple process which includes a state and a subprocess with different end activities:  

The subprocess is similar to the example in user guide >  http://docs.jboss.com/jbpm/v4/userguide/html_single/#endstate http://docs.jboss.com/jbpm/v4/userguide/html_single/#endstate .

When I send the signal "end" to the state in the subprocess, the process wait in state "end state". That's correct! 
But if I send the signal "cancel" or "end", a JbpmException "execution[...] has running subprocess: execution[...] in state cancel/error" throws.
This exception throws in method checkActive() of the class ExecutionImpl:

 if (!isActive())
protected void checkActive()
        if (!isActive())
            throw new JbpmException(toString() + " is not active: " + state);
        else if (this.subProcessInstance != null
                && !Execution.STATE_ENDED.equals(this.subProcessInstance.getState()))
            throw new JbpmException(toString() + " has running subprocess: "
                    + this.subProcessInstance.toString() + " in state " + this.subProcessInstance.getState());

The problem is that the methode only check if the subprocess has the state "end".
I think the method have to check if the subprocess state is one of {end, cancel, error}. Right?
