RSolve v.5 serious bug

Mathematica v. 4 correctly solves the following simple couple of linear  

RSolve[{Ts[k]==2Tp[k-1]+1, Tp[k]==2Tp[k-1]+Ts[k-1]+2,  

With Mathematica v.5 the computation enters a never ending loop.
I found this bug using Mac OS X 10.2.8 but the same happens on Windows  
systems too.

Any hint?
