EAN + future indicative

IN Acts 7:7 we have a text variant:

EAN DOULEUSOUSIN supported by P74 A C D

EAN DOULEUSWSIN supported by P33 Aleph B E ... Maj

The editors of NA27 decided to accept EAN DOULEUSOUSIN, probably
because it is more difficult.

Now my question has to do with EAN + future indicative. BDF (373)
says that there are no undisputed examples of EAN + future
indicative and the proceeds to not explain it. BAGD (p211.2.a) has the
exceedingly illuminating comment "in the same mng.", without giving
much of a clue about which meaning is the same meaning.

My question is: What, if any, difference is there between the
syntax/semantics of these two readings? I have spent some time in
the grammars and have come up with a vague sense that there is no
difference but haven't found any clear statements to that effect.
