It seems to be a namespace / scope problem.

Another test script reveals that without assigning ref explicitly, such
as using the "for ... in" construct, it behaves as expected.

=== script ===
#!/bin/bash
declare -a arr=('dict[k1]' 'dict[k2]')
declare -A dict='([k1]=v1 [k2]=v2)'
declare -n ref
for ref in "address@hidden"; do
  echo $ref
done

ref=${arr[0]}
echo $ref
ref=${arr[1]}
echo $ref

--- output ---
v1
v2
dict[k1]
dict[k2]

As you see, once ref is assigned explicitly, or indeed, is assigned for
a second time, its nameref attribute is lost.
