Downloading multiple parents

When I import portions of the FamilySearch, I notice that I always get just one set of parents for each person. Persons in the tree often have multiple parent couples, often duplicates that can't be easily merged, sometimes real conflicting ones, because fellow genealogists can't agree on which couple is right.

This error was corrected in RM 6, but to my regret it seems to be back.
