Possible Bug in Mainframe Copybook Filter

I am using the mainframe copybook filter to convert mainframe data files to tab-delimted files, and I am using the option to remove "FILLER" fields from the ouput.

The files have a bunch of different formats, but I can easily determine the format from the filename so I can use the right copybook filter. My filter list look ...
