Import and Export of Actor Field via CSV

I've noticed something strange and thought I'd ask if I was doing something wrong...

I'm doing a bulk clean up of my database by exporting to CSV, doing some manipulations with Bash and the re-importing via CSV. 

So far so good... except I noticed something strange about the Actor field...

The starting version looks like this when the record is displayed:

Cast:  John, Sue, Billy, Ryan

The exported CSV is:  ;John, Sue, Billy, Ryan;

When I re-import, it looks like this:

Cast:  John , Sue , Billy , Ryan

When I expand to add or delete names things look fine.  Just the summary view is off.... the only way to fix it to delete the names and manually re-add - which defeats the purpose of using the automagic of CSV import.

Has anyone else seen this behavior?  Is this a bug or am I missing something?
