[4.2.0] Read/write of dynamic Name array returns error

That error being "Numeric type expected, got a name". This makes sense in the fact that the backing for a name array is of type int, but needing to cast to type int before doing a Push or using Find is not very intuitive.

Example pk3 attached, observe and run.

This looks like a duplicate of another report which was, for some reason, also deemed a duplicate - though no link to the original was ever given. And yet, after all this time, the issue is still here, apparently.
