Interesing bug with word elements

It depends on what the contents of test was.  If you look at the user guide 
(and maybe other documentation), item is the only chunk that will create 
blank items, so for put something into word 2 to work, there already needs 
to be a word two, but put x into item 5 of test will add the commas  to 
make test=,,,.x

So I think this is documented behavior and not a bug.
