Actually, no, no it's not. Umm, PAL is simply sped up by approximately 4% on 24fps material - facilitating playback at 50hz. If that's your definition of an "incorrect conversion" - again, you're wrong, it's quite correct for PAL. But, it seems you're now accepting PAL does run faster, which contracdicts your original assertion.
PAL (50i) runs faster than film (24 FPS = 24p = 48i).

PAL (50i) runs slower than NTSC (59.97i).

Also, I would argue that something which changes the runtime is incorrect - simply accepted. If it were right, then all of the European Blu-ray releases wouldn't restore films to their original framerate, now would they?
