Agreed. The form is "swasti," not "swastika." In a way, having something that could get over-zealous sentinels of political correctness annoyed could be a good thing: it might provide a Teachable Moment ("This is what 'swastika' used to mean..."), and the controversy could generate publicity. As they say in Hollywood, there's no such thing as bad publicity--at least if you use it properly.
