Hi Mathieu,

Micheal and I had an off line exchange and ultimately that is what I've done with the 3.3.5 setup-storage, but that did not make the issue go away when I tried it with build 48, so I left that out of my description for that reason. It would be one more variable that could confuse the issue when ultimately it did not fix the problem.
