Multiple (dual) field name search result, with differing reference count

When I do a search for a field name starting from the Fields|General panel, sometimes I get the same field shown on two lines in the results, with a different number of References count. But it I click on the  to display the references, the same is displayed for both (the larger of the two numbers. My screenshots include the two found lines selected individually so you can see the field path is actually the same. The yellow highlighting of a record in the comparison of the two references display was accidental, not trying to point out anything.

    Hi Tony,

    Although we did not block it… you can search using FileMaker… but we have built in searching using Logicator… click on the magnifying glass in the top right.

    Let me know if this helps you get what you were looking for.

    Actually I wasn't concerned about getting the result I needed (I did), I just thought I should report that I was getting TWO records found rather than one, and that they both seem to point to the same larger details display (as they should I suppose, since they are the same field) -- but that the number of dependancies is reported incorrectly for one of the found record lines. It just seems like it might be a bug, and thought you should know.
