Data entered in one field shows up in multiple fields

HanDBase 4.6.5 bug:
I enter a number, call it X, into an integer field. Now, without saving, I move to the next field which is a DB pop-up field. I select one of the choices. Now as I scroll down the record I notice that the number X is displayed in two other integer fields. Note that I have more than 3 integer fields in this record, but the number X shows up in just 3 fields, the one field where I actually entered that number, and 2 other integer fields where that same number mysteriously appears. Now, if I save the record, the number X only shows up in the field for which I entered that number, while the number X that was incorrectly displayed in those other 2 integer fields disappears, leaving the default value of zero for those 2 fields.

So the problem appears not to be a data integrity issue, but rather a temporary incorrect display issue. It was only after entering about 20 records in the field that I noticed this issue. I had initially thought that my data in those 2 fields had been compromised, but after careful review I noted that the data was OK.

I can send the pdb file to you if you need it to duplicate what I am seeing on my end. Let me know if you require it.
