You have found a good buglet here. Basically the
plugin/insert/send management code does some complicated stuff to
automatically manage the channel counts within a track/bus.
You've found a case that the code overlooks. Arguably sends
shouldn't affect the number of internal channel streams that
follow it (like plugins or inserts should). Please enter the
excellent description into a bug in the bug tracking page
In the meantime, Mark's workaround idea sounds promising...
