Bug in exporting animation

Is the error mine or Mathematica's?

plotSequence = Table[ Plot[Sin[t + 2 \[Pi] k/20], {t, 0, 2
\[Pi]}], {k, 1, 20, 1}];

animationExportFailure = Animate[plotSequence[[k]], {k, 1, 20,
1}, DisplayAllSteps -> True,  AnimationRepetitions -> 1,
AnimationDirection -> Forward]


(*correct behavior*)

Export["badAnimation.avi", animationExportFailure]

(*when displayed -- incorrect behavior*)

When called in the notebook animationExportFailure behaves as
requested.  When exported to an avi file, however, it does not:
it runs backwards after running forward.
