It's not a bug, it was defined like that in the code. Historically, this 
digitizer module was developed for SPECT application and to blur only in 
the X and Y directions according to the fact the system didn't measured 
the depht of interaction.
If you want to modify the code to blur in the Z direction, you need to 
modify a couple of lines in the GateSpblurring.cc class :

Replace :
 G4double PzNew = Pz;
G4double PzNew = G4RandGauss::shoot(Pz,m_spresolution/2.35);
