Intentional or not, I'm sure that everyone involved on the engineering side knew it was there. A lot of times people post "gotchas" about albums with the idea that they're exposing something that wasn't previously noticed. (Not saying you're doing this, FS.) In the real world, mistakes happen, and you're not always allowed to go back.
Something else to think about - if the guys doing the tracking have the loop turned up during the overdub phase (As I remember, the main drum/ loop or whatever it was doesn't come in till later in the song), it's quite possible that they didn't notice the bleed until it was too late. I've been there and done that a time or two, since I usually keep the click in the headphone and control room mixes all the way through all of the overdubs and up until the mix stage begins...
