Default Homing attack has broken lock-on in 2D

I know this isn't exactly high on Sonic Team Jr.'s priority list, as it doesn't affect the main SRB2 game in any way, but the hardcoded Homing Attack ability can lock onto objects outside of the 2D plane the player character is in if they're in 2D mode, meaning that having enemies shooting at the player from the background in 2D mode (for example) can break the level for characters with that ability. This glitch definitely sounds fixable, as I'm sure the 2D Homing Attack thinker could be reprogrammed to check that the Y position of the target is equal to that of the player character before initiating the attack, but again, this is probably fairly low-priority, so no rush (not like I have control over that kind of thing anyway).
