Cannot use autonumber if sequence diagram specifies shape of participants

This plantuml specification doesn't parse:

actor Alice
database Bob

Alice -> Bob : Hello

By removing the first two lines that define the shape of participants, the autonumber works properly. The autonumber feature should be independent of the shape, hence this appears to be a bug.

If not, how could I use autonumber in this case? Do I have to use a different syntax?

Thanks, it seems to be already fixed in the newest version. My version was only a few weeks old: version 1.2021.8.
