[development] $form #tree issue

I'm building a dynamic filter system, my user will be able to add as much criteria he wants

Here a tiny example of my current aproach:

 $form['criteria'] = array(
  '#type' => 'fieldset',
  '#title' => t('Criterias'),
  '#collapsible' => TRUE,
  '#collapsed' => FALSE,
  '#tree' => TRUE,

for ($i=1; $i<=variable_get('beginer_criteria', 3); $i++) {
  $form['criteria'][$i]['table[]'] = array(
   '#type' => 'select',
   '#options' => $tables,
   '#value' => $load[$i]['table'],
   '#description'   => $load[$i]['table'],
   '#attributes' => array(
    'class' => 'edit-table',

The form will start with X sets of fields (2 combo, 1 editfield)
I set jQuery to clone any of those criteria, adding more

Here the problem begin, any cloned, will have the same name of the original one.

My $form_values does not return the cloned fields.

my HTML is:

<div class=qz-tablefield><div class="form-item">
 <select name="criteria[1][table[]]" class="form-select edit-table" id="edit-criteria-1-table[]" ><option value="0">Select an option</option><option value="6">criticality</option><option value="2">group</option><option value="4">origin</option><option value="3">position</option><option value="5">priority</option><option value="1">reason</option><option value="7">status</option></select>
<div class="form-item">
 <select name="criteria[1][field[]]" class="form-select edit-field" id="edit-field1" id="edit-criteria-1-field[]" ><option value="0">Select a table</option></select>
<div class="form-item">
 <input type="text" maxlength="100" name="criteria[1][value[]]" id="edit-criteria-1-value[]"  size="30" value="" class="form-text" />
</div>Note the criteria[1], the next set will be criteria[2]The cloned criteria will to be 1 ! the $form_values ignore the new fields.What can I change in my $form to solve that?

Thanks a lot
