Translation in ion-item gives different result


I have this html on Ionic rc3:

    <ion-item  nav-clear menu-close ui-sref="home1" translate> Shell.HOME </ion-item>
    <ion-item  nav-clear menu-close ui-sref="home2" > Home </ion-item>

The strange thing is home1 renders different then home2. In Chrome home2 gets an extra A tag inside the ion-item:

<a class="item-content" ng-href="#/home2" target="_self" href="#/home2"> Home</a>

where home1 does not. I can click on bove of them but the rendering is different because of the different DOM.

Any idea’s what could cause this?
