Provided that &default for tables is not supposed to modify table membership when accessing indices that don't exist, the example you gave looked correct to me (i.e. not a bug)

Since foo[0] and foo[1] are never actually entries in the table, you're always working directly with the value associated with the &default attribute whenever you access the table at those indices.
