[racket] bug? bit-vector equal problem

It seems that "equal?" misbehave on bit-vectors when the size is less 
then 9. Below is a small test case that show this bug? maybe.

Can you guys help to test whether it's only happening on my machine?

#lang racket

(require data/bit-vector)

(define bv1 (make-bit-vector 8 #t))
(define bv2 (make-bit-vector 8 #f))
(equal? bv1 bv2)                       ; => #t
(bit-vector-set! bv1 5 #f)
(equal? bv1 bv2)                       ; => #t

(define bv3 (make-bit-vector 9 #t))
(define bv4 (make-bit-vector 9 #f))
(equal? bv3 bv4)                       ; => #f
(bit-vector-set! bv3 5 #f)
(equal? bv3 bv4)                       ; => #f

Racket version:

$ racket --version
