I got this error in the backup log

Code:
INFO: starting new backup job: vzdump 104 103 102 100 106
...
ERROR: Backup of VM 104 failed - unable to find VM '104'

I checked the backu settings and vm 104 is not mentioned.

I remember I deleted a vm time ago.
I guess it was listed in the backup job.
Once remove the vm, proxmox didn't remove it from the backup config.

Proxmox 4.4-1/eb2d6f1e.

Shall I report this as bug?
Did anyone notice if it impacts also Prxmox 5?

I found this bug has already been reported here.
The bug report asks also other things that I suggested to move on a new bug request.
I changed the 'component' from qemu-server to pve-manager.
