RemoveAlternates not working on haploid VCFs

I'm getting an error on the latest version of SelectVariants when I try and remove alternate alleles in a haploid organism. If I remove the 'TrimAlternates' flag it works correctly, but obviously then I'm left with ghost alleles. Can't see any reason why all alleles should need to be diploid for this?

cheers
