Description (last modified by )
One can take advantage of the fact that (a+b)^{p} = a^{p} + b^{p} to quickly expand f^{n} = f^{qp} * f^{r} (as r<p, and f^{p is sparse, the resulting product is easy to compute). }

This has been resolved upstream (see previous Singular link), so I propose to close this ticket.

This behavior still appears to be present in 2016. Since the underlying representation of multivariate polynomials over a finite field appears to be in Singular, I've raised the issue upstream:
http://www.singular.uni-kl.de/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=2523
For univariate polynomials over a finite field, the underlying representation is in FLINT, and there this seems to be handled correctly (although I haven't looked at the source or asked a developer to confirm):
