Bug in AppleScript "get field" with repeating field

Description of the issue

I'm experiencing a bug when retrieving a field via AppleScript, using FMA10v3. I have a repeating field with 5 repetitions, like so: cell "x" of record 1 of table "y"--> {"1", "2", "", "5", "A"} So far so good. If I get a "field" instead of "cell", I'd expect to get N lists of lists each with 5 items, where N is the number of records, like so: field "x" of table "y"--> {{"1", "2", "", "5", "A"}, {"5", "8", "G", "2", "B"}, {"7", "9", "S", "1", "A"} ... } However, what I'm actually getting is this:{"1", "2", "", "5", "A", {"5", "8", "G", "2", "B"}, {"7", "9", "S", "1", "A"} ... } such that the first 5 items are strings instead of them constituting the first list within the list of records.
