Removed clone prefix adds blank space

Jira Version (v4.4.3).

We recently decided to remove the prefix for cloned issues. Following the instructions here (https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA044/Configuring+Issue+Cloning) we were able to change the property to be blank. However once we clone an issue the summary has a blank space as a prefix.

For illustration purposes:

starting ticket summary: 'TestingCloning3'

After first clone (and rolling the count in the summary): ' TestingCloning2'

After clone of the first clone (and rolling the count in the summary): ' TestingCloning3'

This situtation is similar to: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-28310.

As an additional note when you start the clone operation the modal pop-up adds the space in as well. This behavior also trickles down to sub tasks.

Is there a fix for this behavior?

JIRA Clone-Plus Plugin has clone actions that can be customized and by default does not append any text to the summary :).
