Web Direct disregards "perform without dialog" on Import Records

I have a script that imports a specified set of records from one table to another.

 

In FileMaker Pro, the script executes as expected.   No dialog appears and the records are correctly imported.

 

In Web Direct, the same script results in this dialog appearing.  Obviously, the user does not know what to import an if they did import anything it would be incorrect and destructive, so they press Cancel to dismiss the dialog.  The not-so-obvious danger is that any successive script step, such as Replace will be operating on all the records in the table rather than only upon the records that were expected mohave been imported. 

 

Web Direct needs to respect the setting  Perform Without Dialog.
