          Thank you for your post.


          I'm running 10.5.5 and I cannot duplicate the problem, so it's probably something introduced with 10.5.6.  I have forwarded this information to our Development and Software Quality Assurance (Testing) teams for confirmation.  If any information becomes available, I will post again.
