Hi David,

We had the same issue. In our case we replaced some characters in the signature
to make it work < 4.2. It seemed that after the upgrade, this was no longer
needed. That's what I get from the programmer.

It sounds a little vague, but it to answer your question, no it's not broken. I
would recommend to check your code, and compare it to the code of the CS gui.

Hope this helps!
