111 - Thrown Mob Egg and Hoppers

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1.Catch any mob
2.Find/make area with floor as hopper (optionally, make all hopper connected to target 1 chest, to see result)
3.Throw the egg , aim it so the egg will hit the hopper (throw using RIGHT CLICK, not drop)

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Expeted: The mob will spawn normally
Reality: The thrown egg is considered as "dropped item" and therefore its sucked by the hopper where the egg lands
Even worse, the egg 'transform', and now it have enchantment Punch 69

What versions MobCatcher, CraftBukkit, and Spout (if any) are you using?
Im not server owner, bukkit version 1.5.2 , so i guess latest mobcatcher, no spout

Have you previously had any older versions of MobCatcher on your server?

Do you have an error log of what happened?

Please provide any additional information below.
This bug is very annoying, in some server the player may think the owner is trolling because the egg is suddenly enhanted in the hopper
and some player that *unknowingly* get the enchanted egg might be considered cheating and got banned while it is actually plugin's bug
Moreover, when making chicken farm with hopper, one must make a target area that dont have hopper so the egg dont get sucked back by the hopper

Current way to avoid this is by using Shift-rightclick when targetting hopper so eggs is not thrown (instantly spawned)

    Fixed for the next update.

    Spawn eggs thrown (right click) at a hopper will no longer be sucked up and will spawn normaly while eggs dropped will use the hopper like a normal item

    I could remove the enchantment (currently thats how I decide that a player can't pick up an egg thats been thrown) and do that another way, but until there are events for the hopper pick up thats all I can do at the moment.
