Dissipointed in CW Skimmer / Flex interface

I have to say I am very disappointed in CW Skimmer / Flex interface.   Using both DDUtil and SDR - Bridge.  I have more headaches than success.   Every thing from not tracking the slice correctly to not showing any signals on the pan adapter.  Every time I get it  working and save the config, the next time something weird happens.  I just downloaded wireshark and looked at my Ethernet stream.   Only thing I saw that did not look right was a lot of fragmented UDP packets.   I don't think that is the issue between the 6300 > SDR-Bridge>CW Skimmer. 

I did email Alex  VE3NEA and he confirmed that he is working on a new skimmer code but it is still a year off. 

I am hoping some one can advise the best method for trouble shooting.  I have wore out reconfiguring CW Skimmer so I am pretty sure it's not a config issue.

So I took the advice, blew out CW Skimmer and reloaded.  Had same issue where freq offset was not right.  I went back and looked at the settings and I had right/left channels set to I/O instead of left/right set to I/O.  That seems to have fixed it.
