Cubist's first bug report

I feel that I am somewhere in another world.
Can someone please explain to me where the "Any Item" or even Just the command "Any" is documented? I can't seem to find this.
Sorry if this sounds like a stupid question, but when I see something that is new to me, I have to explore it and its uses.

Subject: Cubist's first bug report

Code which exhibits the bug:

on mouseUp
   put "0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0" into Fred
   repeat 100 times
      add 1 to any item of Fred
      put Fred into line (1 + the number of lines in fld "testbed") of fld "testbed"
   end repeat
   put sum (Fred) into line (1 + the number of lines in fld "testbed") of fld "testbed"
end mouseUp

This handler *should* end up generating a 16-item string of integers which sum to exactly 100. What it *actually does* end up generating, is a 16-item string of integers whose sum may or may not fall somewhere within the range 80-120. Not sure what the hell is going on here, but I am not at all happy about it. Perhaps other people might like to try this code on their systems, and see if it works as intended for them?
