Setting the Global Profile for Startup

I only have three Global Profiles:  MyDigi, MyGlobal (SSB), and the supplied SO2RDefault (never used).  When I start my 6300 using SmartSDR some other Global profile gets loaded because my settings are NOT any of the three and the Mic Profile says *MyGlobal every time.  I have saved Global Profile many times trying to fix this, to no avail.  

What Global Profile is getting loaded at Startup and how can I make it load MyGlobal at Startup?  

I've read the SmartSDR user guide and the separate document on using profiles ... no mention of Startup found.

As some users have stated, a specific Global Profile is not loaded on initial connect to the Radio. Persistence determines what is loaded on connect which should be the state of your radio when you last disconnected. Some third party applications save and load global profiles on connect and disconnect but SmartSDR for Windows and SmartSDR for Maestro do not. 

Global profiles are a starting point for radio operation not a running state of the radio. This means that there is never a 'currently loaded' global profile unlike transmit and mic profiles. 

The asterisk appearing next to a transmit/mic profile indicates that a field in the transmit or mic profile has changed. Recently we found and fixed several bugs relating to this where the asterisk would appear even though nothing had changed. This should be fixed in the next release.
