FM17 Import behavior different than previous versions

I have a solution I have been using in my business for many years, and I have dutifully updated it with each new version of Filemaker. As part of the way I built this, I have order line items that are stored in repeating fields ( I know this is not considered anywhere near best practice, but it has functioned flawlessly for all of these years, so I have left it alone). The the order is posted, the script performs an import into a temporary table to "split out" the repetitions into individual records. The way it has always worked is that the import script step imports the records from the order line items found set only. When I run this in FM17, it ignores the found set and imports all of the records in the table. Needless to say, this breaks everything.

 

My question is if this is an intentional and fundamental change in Filemaker 17, or if it is a bug I should hope to see fixed in the future?

 

Thank you,
