After review by the development team, it has been determined that this issue is related to a known limitation with the software that lies outside of Esri's control. The issue's Additional Information section may contain further explanation.
This appears to be a known limitation in ArcGIS for Desktop in its ability to properly deal with shapefiles where the .dbf file is greater than 2 GB.
Export the downloaded file to a new feature class to fix the indexing of the attribute table.
