Since I receive notifications about new posts in this thread and there is no reply from Elliot I decided to share my solution which is probably the only way to fix this problem without editing plugin code. It is extremely dirty hack but it works for me and is still better then editing AFC code. Put it in your functions.php
I attach as zipped .php file because I am affraid that this text field may delete backslashes or something 🙂
