Bug in Search PageLayouts in SharePoint 2010

And after a while I found that the problem is that the webpart zone is added in the "PlaceHolderTitleBreadcrumb" place holder and not in the "PlaceHolderMain".

And when I tried to edit the page I found it like this:

And also the search result page is the same:

As you can see in the image, the search filtration is not in the place as it should as well.
