Default ReaXcomp misbehaves with automated threshold...

It seems that ReaXcomp misbehaves when having its threshold automated.

In the Licecap below, I automate band 2 to compress pink noise in the Comp region, and we can see that at the transient where the envelope goes to -14, ReaXcomp briefly compresses the signal -11 dB. If I just let ReaXcomp compress band 2 of the noise, not playing, it compresses between -2.5 and -4.7, nowhere near -11. And this misbehavior is audible, and can also be seen in the rendered output.

ReaXcomp settings:
Attack 0ms
Release 100 ms
RMS 5 ms
I never always did the right thing, but all I did wasn't wrong...
