CW Mode A and Mode B Problem

I have just discovered that on my 6700 using the latest version of SmartSDR that Mode A and Mode B perform exactly the same.

Try the following and see if others get the same result.

I set the Speed to 5 WPM so it is easy to follow the patterns.

In Mode A to send the letter C, press the DAH paddle,
Hold it and quickly press and hold the DIT paddle.
The Flex Keyer will send DAH DIT DAH DIT,
When the last DIT is being sent release both paddles and the Character STOPS.

When you change to Mode B if you do the same and when it is in the middle
of the second DAH, you release the paddles it should send the opposite character.
Which is the last DIT in the letter C.

The Flex keyer does not follow the rule for Mode B.

I do not know when this changed,  but I believe it was correct at some time in the past.
