Logic Pro 8 Surround Panner

Does anyone else notice that when using the mono to surround panner, if the diversity is 0.0 and you move the source around 360 degrees, the volume does not remain constant. Its because the pan law for each adjacent pair of speakers in the surround panner is not functioning like a traditional stereo panner does. Also, when you take a source and move it from a diversity of 0.0 to a diversity of 1.0, the volume isn't constant either... it only compensates 3dB, when it really should be more like 7.5dB for five speakers. I want to be working in an intuitive 5.1 environment, and this panner is really bugging me.

Any suggestions?

The attached document is a test I did to prove the technicalities of what I was hearing...
