Diversity Mode problem

When starting the Diversity Mode (clicking the DIV button) Slice B pops up on the screen great with ANT2 selected as expected but the RF signal level (S-Meter levels) (and the audio output) are very low. Almost like no antenna but not quite a dummy load. The fix I have found is to select the RXB antenna button and then return to ANT2 then the signal level jumps up to normal levels. Is this a known problem or just with my radio?
6700 running Version 1.3.8 ssdr software. Had this problem with Version 1.3.0 but thought maybe it would be fixed with the new Version. No Joy.

Did you make this problem known during the 1.3.0 span?

I checked the defect database and this report of the antenna port not properly switching was not listed.  I have added it to the defect list for additional investigation.  Thanks for reporting it.
