The 3 bid should be forcing, since it bypasses the 3 level in the only suit we've bid, and opener has in no way shown extras. Any idea why this bizarre description and bid occurred?

This is what people in the business call a "GIB Special" (an out of the blue, wacky, and unexplainable bid). A combination of a programming bug and insufficient programming to filter out these types of errors.

2 is limited. All further descriptions carry forward the same limits regardless of what they mean.

As for why it bids 3, who knows..
Feel free to send me a friend challenge of any format as often as you like. I'll always accept :)
