Table of contents indents differently depending on following heading

I have the following storage:

<ac:structured-macro ac:name="panel">
    <p>Table of Contents</p>
      <ac:structured-macro ac:name="toc">
        <ac:parameter ac:name="minLevel">2</ac:parameter>
    <p>List of Figures</p>
      <ac:structured-macro ac:name="toc">
        <ac:parameter ac:name="maxLevel">6</ac:parameter>
        <ac:parameter ac:name="minLevel">6</ac:parameter>
        <ac:parameter ac:name="exclude">Table.*.</ac:parameter>
<ac:structured-macro ac:name="numberedheadings">
  <ac:parameter ac:name="skip-headings">h6</ac:parameter>
  <ac:parameter ac:name="start-numbering-with">1</ac:parameter>
  <ac:parameter ac:name="start-numbering-at">h2</ac:parameter>
    <h3>Because of this</h3>

When displayed, the second "Figure" indents way more than the first, because of the <h3> following it. If you change the <h3> to an <h2> it looks as expected.

Is there a way I can get this to display correctly in the table of contents? My goal is to use Heading 6 for a List of Figures. I'm using 5.4.4.

There is a bug report for this issue at The only current workaround for this issue would be to use a different heading after the h6. In my testing all headings are affected by this except for h1 and only by following a heading with the heading that came before it (in your case an h2) or with the same heading (h6 followed by h6) will prevent it from moving right.
