i just noticed it recently .. the problem with it is not so much as in front pedalling but if i were to back pedal the chain is bound to drop off or to the inner chainring...

Maybe you need move the front derailleur cage to the right a few mm?

The angle of the chain will cause everything to wear out faster, its also not as efficent.
