I wrote an ebuild inheriting from versionator and set SLOT="$(get_major_version)". However, eix shows the slot of this package as "((get_major_version))" instead of the correct major version. Apparently, eix doesn't expand the function call there.
This can also be observed in the dev-util/idea-ultimate ebuilds from the "luman" overlay.

Sorry, I had to change my email recently.
Concerning the original bug: This is known to fail with the quick and secure but only heuristic cache method "parse" (or "parse*") and cannot be fixed.
Use a reliable method like "ebuild" (or "ebuild*") or - better - setup your system to use metadata: See the SPEEDUP section in the eix manpage.
