Tapping on a note field changes its type

Weird one for you.  I have a form with a Note field that subtracts two number fields.  It is bound to a int.  It is later used in a sum() from a repeat like sum(${Cat1C}).  On a tablet but it does it on connect also.


If a user puts two numbers in and hits next on the repeat it all works great.  So say you have a 25 in one repeat then a 35 you get 60.  But if the user "taps" on the note field then the final sum changes to a concatenate and you get 2535.  You cannot tap into and change the field but since it still looks like txt box you can tap in that area.  It does make the calc show but then it is somehow a string.  If I hit the check mark on the google keyboard, make sure to not tap anywhere else and advance the repeat it also works fine.  Only the tap breaks it all.  We can get this to happen on demand.  


For now we have to tell people not to tap on it.  Even though they really want to see that number.


Any ideas?  Must be a bug?
