FourierTransform Bug V4

FourierTransform of v4 returns incorrect values.  For
example, the following is computed in version 4:

FourierTransform[UnitStep[t], t, w, FourierParameters ->

= -(I/w) - Pi*DiracDelta[w]

But version 3 correctly returns

-(I/w) + Pi*DiracDelta[w]

How can I fix this?  Perhaps Unprotect[FourierTransform]...
