PTT Sticks when using VOX

Here is a new one that I just discovered.
on my 6500, using the latest 1.3 software.
If I am using VOX and push the PTT footswitch while talking and then let up on it, the PTT remains locked in TX.
I must turn the VOX button off for the rig to return to RX.

This happened very shortly after I had powered the rig up after a total power down (power supply off overnight,) and loading up one of my many Global Profiles.

I have repeated the effect several times.  Has anyone else experienced this?

YES I have see the same thing, since unplugging the foot switch and going direct wire to the radio or using VOX it had not occurred again.  SETUP Heil PR-20 with a HBA or wired direct.

Hi Ken,

I confirm the same problem here.  Turn VOX on, talk to activate VOX, push and release PTT (my PTT is through pin 14 on the rear accessory connector) while VOX is activated, and the only way to get out of TX is to turn VOX off.
