As far as I know that is not a bug, but is actually an older intended way to apply DamageFactor to all damage types.

To have your intended effect I believe you need to specify "None".

As I was the one who recommended he report this, I believed the proper way to apply a DamageFactor to all types globally was to simply not specify a type at all, i.e. DamageFactor 1.5. The use of DamageFactor "Normal", multiplying any damage lacking a specific type, would be reinforced by the following example on two pages, the MAPINFO damage type definition page (Examples section) and the Custom damage types (in a deprecated section, but nonetheless is consistent with the first):

Code:
// In DECORATE:
Actor TakesMoreDamage
{
    DamageFactor "Normal", 1.5 // Takes extra damage for attacks that have no specific damage factor.
    // We have changed Drowning so that it ignores DamageFactor "Normal" by ReplaceFactor.
}
