Interesting.  The 6.7-3 release was supposed to include a fix for this 
problem (which was introduced sometime before 6.7-3) but it appears that 
the fix didn't make it into the release, instead it will be in 6.7-4 
(see the release notes for 6.7-3 via the About... menu on the tray icon, 
you'll see that it claims this was fixed already).

Thanks for the heads up,
