Maestro Internal Software Updating

Most of the time when I boot the Maestro right after I choose v1.8.4.18 I get this message:

"Maestro Internal Software Updating (Step 3 of 4). Please wait..."

It then it boots normally. I installed v1.8.4.18 the day it was available and have had no unknown issues except this message occasionally.

I have yet to prove it but this happens only when I boot on battery power. Time will tell.

Has anyone else seen this?

With one of the changes we made in 1.8.4 to prevent the PIC controllers from getting hung in bootloader mode and preventing the Maestro to boot, we may have inadvertently created a situation where we are not getting some state information and the Maestro thinks one part of the software needs to be reloaded upon start up.  This situation is operationally benign, but will slightly delay the Maestro startup.  We are aware of the situation and it has been entered into our bug tracker for resolution.  Thanks for the heads up this was happening.
