Track completion bug?

I went into the Learn Wordpress track to brush up on a few things, although I'm fairly competent at Wordpress. I started off by taking each quiz, and, when I ran into a quiz I couldn't complete, I'd watch the videos, then go back to the quiz and pass it. Again, I already knew many of the things in the course, so this seemed like the most expedient path: I didn't need to watch all the videos to pass the quizzes, so why should I?

Once I successfully completed all the badges and courses in the track, though, the track was still listed as incomplete (I could go to "resume the track", and the Track Completion at the bottom was still inactive).

I decided that this was because I hadn't watched all the videos. To test this, I loaded the unwatched videos, and played the last few seconds of each video so that they counted as being watched. The problem is still there: I have completed every badge and every course in the track (and now watched every video) -- green lights and badges everywhere! -- yet the track is still incomplete.

A fix might be to list the videos as watched (and give the users the correct number of points for those videos) once the quiz corresponding to the preceding videos has been passed, or to do that once a badge has been completed.

It doesn't bother me hugely or change my experience much, except that it's obviously an error and reporting it seems like the right thing to do.
