Misidentified Addons

Been running into this for a while now and hoped it would shake itself out but it hasn't. I'm running into addons being misidentified in Minion. This happens occasionally with SCT and the SCT/SCTD Beta but it's happening repeatedly (i.e., let Minion uninstall, then via Minion reinstall -- thinking maybe that'll help it play nice):
This is what is installed: http://www.wowinterface.com/download...5-Dominos.html
It's repeatedly IDed as: http://www.wowinterface.com/download...minosBeta.html

I've cleared the addon cache which sometimes fixes it for a bit then it comes back confused.

Addon authors putting "3.06.15" in the version field and 30615 in the .toc (I'm looking at you Arkinventory) or "2.5.0 - r188" in the version field and "2.5.0-r188" in the .toc (lookin' at you, Elkano's BuffBars) are bad enough, leading Minion to constantly think an update is needed (for which I really wish there was a 'accept wow-interface ver as proper until it changes' option) are bad enough w/o Minion coming along and helping addon authors confuse the poor, downtrodden user. There's only so many nights you can fruitlessly sit up in the dark waiting for the underpants gnomes to rearranged your installed addons before you start thinking it just might be a software issue and the gnomes are (shockingly) blameless.
