Full Duplex by default?

Running a 6500 with SSDR-2.49 and haven't had any problems, but an anomaly may have shown up. When using separate antenna on RXA and transmit on ANT2, the 6500 will transmit on ANT2 and continue to receive on the other slices. This same behavior is seen if FDX selected or not. Changing to ANT2 trans+recv, the radio operates in simplex  mode. Are others seeing this behavior?

Maybe time for a hard reset....

For clarification..... are you saying the rig is receiving on the 2nd antenna WHILE transmitting, regardless of FDX setting?

I did a hard reset (first time in almost 3 years) with no change.

I need to correct the symptoms:
In non-FDX the panafalls for other slices continue to display signals (during transmit) but audio and DAX are not streaming. In FDZ mode the non-TX slices continue to send DAX information.  So FDX does work. 
It appears if one uses RXA for receive and ANT1 or ANT2 for XMT, then panadapters opened on other bands continue to display activity.
