Dislocated vowel and word boundary in Hebrew

With the “Display a plus between morphemes in WTT” of “General Hebrew Options” unchecked, everything is normal as in the following “copy and paste”:

hr"vea]l' tc,l,p.mi ht'f.['-rv,a]

from 1Ki 15:13. But with the “Display a plus …” checked to see the morpheme boundaries, the same display changes to:

hr"vea]ÂlÂt' c,l,p.mi ht'f.['Â-rv,a]

Now, three strange things seem to have happened here:

1. The word boundary between the last two words has changed to a morpheme boundary.

2. The Qamets has moved to the preceding consonant.

3. An extraneous word boundary has been inserted before the final consonant of the second word from the last.

Are these “strange things” expected to happen and therefore normal, or is something wrong? And if something wrong, how can it be fixed? (I am still using BW7 because my BW8 hasn’t arrived yet.)

Thank you very much for your help (in advance).

Looks like a bug to me. Would encourage you to report it.
