Fixing this issue makes the current parser much slower, but we are looking into a better solution for the next major release. The solution now is to make sure fields exist before you add new ones, or set values to non-existent fields in ascending order.
We just ran into this issue last week and spent several hours wrangling with it on version 3.1.1.7461. I can see that it has been known since 2007. Although the workaround is straightforward enough, is any fix for it on the horizon? This would likely prevent some needless suffering by others in future and might also prevent a less experienced evaluator of Mirth from giving up on the product prematurely.
