Interesting test case, Malte. Thanks for that - I just added myself to
the CC list there. It'll be interesting to see how how pans out.
One of the challenges of the test there is that it's testing many very
different things at once:

That last bit about needing to use "send" is most curious, seeming to
imply that the issue may not have anything to do with the field
business, but may instead be limited to the handling of pending messages.
It would be helpful if someone could try two breaking that up into two
- One which does the field manipulation in a repeat loop
- Another which uses "send" to trigger something presumably
innocuous, like "get 1+1"
That would seem helpful to isolating the root cause.
I've just added that as a note to the report. We'll see how it goes....
