Yes, it's a bug. Thank you for report. Correction is trivial.
As usual, I'll send the updated file (pst-node.tex) with VERSIONS and CHANGES
ones to Sebastian to update CTAN files.

Here is the temporary solution:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{pst-node}

\makeatletter
\def\mnode at dot{\dotnode at ii(\z@,\z@){\psm at thenode}}
\makeatother

\begin{document}

\begin{psmatrix}[mnode=dot]
A & B
\end{psmatrix}

\begin{psmatrix}[emnode=dot]
A & & & B
\end{psmatrix}

\end{document}
