Loading presets via program change disables clip automation

I have the following problem with Audio Unit instruments: when I load presets using the bank select and program change properties of an ableton clip, automation for this clip gets disabled. I can reproduce this e.g. with TAL Bassline and Zebra2.

My hypothesis is:

1) Clip launches

2) Clip sends bank select and program change to plugin

3) Plugin loads preset, therefore triggering a change in many parameters

4) This change is interpreted by Live as a manual change. Therefore, automation is disabled.

This is a major bummer since you cannot combine preset loading and automation.

Any ideas for workarounds?
