The developer of ACF does not really get around to these forums very often, it’s mostly for users helping other users. I think this might be something the developer would like to be aware of, it could even be a bug.
I would suggest that you submit a new support ticket. You can do this several ways. There is a link on the support home page in the right sidebar to open a support ticket, you can also click this link.
