Dear Jan,

We had this same field accuracy problem with dig betas and axial 2020 and
4.10 fixed it.  (any reference to v4.11 can be taken to mean 4.10 as i
understand).  4.10 did not fix roll thru auto-assembly for us tho.

We also heard rumors of this record during pre-roll problem, but
unfortunately the rumor indicated that it was with 4.10 firmware.  We have
not had this problem with the axial and the dig betas.  The rumor was
circulating on the Discreet Logic newsgroup.  

Hope this helps
