Incomplete SNMP Query Results

I have two sample Brocade switches,

Model Kernel Fabric OS
A) HP SANswitch 2/16 5.4 v3.2.1b
B) HP SANswitch 4/16 2.6.14.2 v6.2.0b

If I attempt to use SNMP to query swNsLocalNumEntry (1.3.6.1.4.1.1588.2.1.1.1.7.1), switch A returns 4 (meaning there should be 4 entries in the table), and switch B returns 5.

If I then query the switches for swNsPortID (1.3.6.1.4.1.1588.2.1.1.1.7.2.1.2), switch A correctly returns 4 entries, but switch B returns 4 also, which is incorrect.

I have verified this across multiple switches of the same types (and versions) listed above, and it appears consistent. The B type switches always leave off the first entry in the table; the remaining entries appear correct.

Has anyone else observed this, and is there a solution?

Thanks.
