Is the concern over high credit limit with Capital One an issue for Canadians?

In this thread from the frequently requested topics section, the not reporting of the high limit for Capital One is a concern as I get started repairing my credit.

I was accepted for a $3000 card and I'm wondering if I have to pull the maneuvre of maxing my high balance and paying it off immediately to have this properly be reported?

I subscribe to TU's Credit Monitoring Unlimited and checking my TU report, I see this in the More about this account >> section

Past Due: 		Remarks:
High Balance: 	$3000   Amt In High Credit Column (Disp 122-130 of Trade Segment) Is Credit Limit
Last Activity: 	12/14/2010

My TU score went up 25 points after this card was added but the section under Trends that reports my Available Credit Over Time it still reports $0.

Thanks for any insight!

This month I purposefully left $100ish dollars on my Capital One when they reported and I'm seeing that the $3000 CL is definitely included in my utilisation now. So I don't think this is an issue any more. At least not in Canada.
