 Foxpro 2.5/DOS array bug

Has anyone heard of this bug that bit me recently?

Platform:  FoxPro 2.5B/DOS, Novell 2.2 network, 8 stations + server.

Unwanted behaviour: Global arrays disappearing between procedures
                    ~5% of the time.

                     ________________
                    | declare arrays |     __________________
                    | as global      |----| arrays populated |
                    |________________| |  |__________________|
                                       |
                                       | - arrays randomly lost
                                       |   ___________________
                                       |___| arrays printed   |
                                           |__________________|

Solution: Combine lower procedures into one. Behaviour disappears.

Question: Is this a known bug that reasonably should have been
          known about?

Thanks,

Pete
