Container Data displayed in Data Viewer variable becomes Text

I found an interesting situation about the Data Viewer.  I have a script step that is a variable equal to the contents of a container field (e.g., binary file).  When I turn on the data viewer and run this script step, the binary file as variable is turned into a text file that is equivalent to the GetAsText ( containerField ) and is then treated like that for the rest of the script.  It is no longer a binary file.  This does NOT happen if you don't have data viewer on or if you don't display the variable with the container data.
