Comment:

 This is due to the fact that record arrays *must* be initialized with
 tuples when using the array construct.  There had to be some mechanism to
 distinguish between "buffer" for placing data in directly and for
 "interpreting" the data from a sequence.  The tuple is how that decision
 is made.

 There were some errors not being reported correctly, however, which I've
 fixed.
