layout fails on statistics with system generated name

This happens in SQL Prompt 4 and SQL Refactor 1. Having written some script to drop some statistics auto created by the server then layout function fails with a 'syntax' error message with the first statistics name underlined in wavy red.

Parsing the TSQL shows no errors.
Executing the TSQL returns success.

The statistics name is "_WA_Sys_0000000B_7F948E70". The TSQL is simply:
DROP STATISTICS [schema]..[_WA_Sys_0000000B_7F948E70]

it makes no difference if I include [ and ] or not, or alter the script to have a different statistic as the first one. Which ever statistic is first causes the error.

Will test this with EAP 5 when the install is complete.

[Later ... ... quite a bit later]
this also fails with EAP5
