If you switch a measure from 4/4 to 7/8, it will need to either remove 1/8th, or add 6/8th. It chooses to do the latter (to avoid removing that missing bar) -- if you didn't want the extra measure, you can easily remove it. If we made it remove when necessary (which I'm not inclined to do), it would have removed an 8th and if you wanted the extra measure (or data from the 1/8th that was removed), restoring it would be more difficult.
