It's always worth a shot.  Adobe does have a bug site:

I've been requesting a fix to the "Invalid color: colored pattern  
specified with uncolored pattern colorspace." problem since 7.0 first  
came out; 7.0.5 still has the problem (check your Console and 'asl'  
logs to see what I mean), but perhaps if enough people request a fix,  
something will change.
