Can updatelocations() be called on a TE flowitem that is created from process flow?

I'm trying to create a heatmap of where TE flowitems are walking in my model that uses AStar to direct their travel.

I have the following code:

treenodearray pulledTravelers = getlabel(token,"pulledTravelers");

for(int i= 1; i <= arraysize(pulledTravelers); i++) {
	treenode person = getlabel(pulledTravelers[i],"item");
	if(objectexists(person)) {
		int personNum = getlabel(person,"PersonNum");
		int row = gettablerows("HeatMapData");

and every time it gets to updatelocations(person) it throws the following error and exits the code so it never captures the data I want to capture

exception: Exception caught in TreeNode::callMemberFunction() c++/dll execution. Throwing... MAIN:/project/exec/commandlist/updatelocations/node c: MAIN:/project/exec/commandlist/updatelocations/node thisClass: MAIN:/project/exec/commandlist/updatelocations/node exception: Exception caught in flexscript execution of MODEL:/Tools/ProcessFlow/ProcessFlow/Update locations>variables/codeNode line 12 instruction 28.

Is there a bug in updatelocations that is making it so I'm unable to call it?

Yes, updatelocations() has a bug that makes it throw an exception if the TE flowitem is directly under the model. This will be fixed in the next release.
