Ah, tracked this down--this is a BG item that's sold at Lucky Aello's (he sells a fine array of cursed scrolls). Looking closer at the item, I think the targeting is correct. Three effects are targeted at Preset Target--Kill, Play Sound, and a Display String effect with the string "Your friend has been cursed with death.", all of which are set with a Delay/Permanent timing mode on a 4 second delay. All of the other effects are instantaneous and targeted at the caster, including a "You have been cursed with Poison." string (which matches the poison effects you get).


I'm taking this off the fix list as this behavior appears intended.
