Layered navigation - wrong option

I’m having a problem with layered navigation for configurable products. Say, I have dropdown attribute “ATTR” with options “VAL1”, “VAL2” and “VAL3”. I created two simple products with “ATTR” values “VAL2” and “VAL2” respectively. Then I created a configurable product with “ATTR” as a configuration option. I associated the two simple products with this new configurable product. I also disabled the two simple products so that they don’t appear in the product list. Now in the layered navigation I get ALL THREE options ("VAL1", “VAL2” and “VAL3") with my configurable product under each of them. However, this is wrong. The option “VAL1” should not appear in the layered navigation, since it is not possible to select this option for the configurable product. Is this a bug in Magento or should I do something else in addition to correct this issue? Anyone else having this problem?
