    Additional Information

    Replication steps
    1. Find a bib_id range where some of the bib records have been deleted.
    170, 171, 173, 175 exist for bib_id range 170-175; bib_id 172 and 174 have been deleted.
    2. Run MarcExport on this bib_id range.
    Pmarcexport -rB -mR -t170-175
    3. Note that more than the actual number of bibs are exported (in this example, 6).
    4. Look at the resulting marc.exp* record file. Note that there are records with 001 fields of 172 and 174. 172 contains the MARC data from bib_id 171. 174 contains the MARC data from 173.

    Workaround: Use a list of bib_ids (-mM)
