[Bioperl-l] question about in-between overlapping exact location

I was surprised to see that:
$ins = Bio::Location::Simple->new(-start => 2,
-end => 3,
-location_type => 'IN-BETWEEN',
$start = Bio::Location::Simple->new(-start => 3,
-end => 5);
print "Wow!\n" if $start->overlaps($ins);
To my mind they would only overlap if the insertion were 3^4 or 4^5.
Is my mental model of in-between's overlapping exact's wrong, or could
the code be improved (I'm happy to make a change, but...)?
