Merge form isn't correctly handling multiple marriages

While completing a merge, I ran into a merging error that spooked me. This man married twice. The first marriage appeared on only one profile (the planned merge destination), and it had no date. The second marriage appeared on both profiles, with an erroneous location on the destination profile and a correct location on the other one,

Here's what I saw in the various columns on the merge screen:

Spouse (8935640) Van Duzen-8 Marriage:
Marriage End:
Location: Schenectady, Province of New York

Marriage:
Marriage End:
Location: Schenectady, Province of New York

Spouse (528806) Delamater-13 Marriage: 15 Jan 1701
Marriage End:
Location: Albany, Albany County, Province of New York
Marriage: 15 Jan 1701
Marriage End:
Location: Manhattan, Collegiate Church, New York

Marriage: 15 Jan 1701
Marriage End:
Location: Albany, Albany County, Province of New York

I wanted to change the data for the second marriage so it would be in the Manhattan Collegiate Church, not Albany. But when I hit the radio button next to Manhattan Collegiate Church, the first marriage was completely removed from the merge screen and the location of the second marriage wasn't changed.

No harm done on this one (I let the merge go through with the data on the original destination profile, and now I'll go correct the location), but I want this bug to be corrected before it makes a mess for someone else's merge.

Thanks Ellen, I've confirmed the bug. It's just a problem with the display -- the disappearing spouse will still be there after the merge.
