ContourLabel placement

Hi all,

The documentation for ContourLabels says "The positions of contour
labels are determined automatically to optimize readability." But that
doesn't seem to be the case with this plot:

ContourPlot[Log[((-1 + p)*q)/(p*(-1 + q))]/Log[2],
   {p, 0, 1}, {q, 0, 1}, Contours -> Range[-7, 7],
   PlotPoints -> Automatic, ContourShading -> False,
   ContourLabels -> Automatic]

Does this count as a bug?

Of course, I can place labels by hand.


PS, I'm using "6.0 for Microsoft Windows (32-bit) (June 19, 2007)".
