CW Skimmer waterfall on IQ 1 halts

When using CW Skimmer I've noticed an odd thing happening with IQ 1 only. The Skimmer waterfall will start at a good pace and then after a minute or two it starts to halt or slow down for a second and then starts moving while at the same time it displays what appears to be static or noise of some sort.

This does not happen on IQ 2,3 or 4. It also seems to not matter the number of slices open or band the slice is on. Additional slices all work fine in the CW Skimmer waterfall while the problem is happening in the first slice.

I tried having slice A and B set the the same frequency using IQ 1 and 2 and the first waterfall starts and stops with noise being displayed while the second on the same frequency moves quickly without issues. Shutting down DAX fixes the problem  for a while but then will start up again.

Now here's the weird thing. While this is happening Skimmer is correctly decoding and sending the results to Spot Collector  for the slice associated with IQ 1. It appears to be a display issue with the Skimmer waterfall only when using IQ 1.

Has anyone else experienced this? I'm assuming it's a Skimmer issue with IQ 1 but wanted to check
