transmit problem in V.1.4.16

If others have reported this, I missed it.  

I have had several instances where I opened a second panadapter, transmitted on the slice in it, and then closed it.  (For example, Pan 'A' was on 20 SSB, and pan 'B' was 6 meter SSB.)  

After closing Pan B, the rig would not transmit on the original pan and Slice 'A.'  All the indicators (TX selection, etc) were showing properly, and there is a weak display of my SSB pattern on the panadapter, but no power output.  

It required me to close the panadapter and reopen it before it would transmit.

On another occasion, after opening four panadapters to demonstrate the power of the Flex to my buddies who helped install my new antenna, it wouldn't transmit until I closed SSDR and opened only a single panadapter.  (embarassing...)

Has anyone else experienced this?

Is this reproducible and if so, what are the steps to reproduce it?

It happened to me three times yesterday.  I got it to do it again by opening up two slices on 20 and 6.
I closed SSDR last night to go to bed.
I just fired it up this afternoon for about an hour and have not been able to "break" it again, yet.
I will let you know if it happens again.

If it breaks again, export all your profiles, send them to me with the steps you did so I can see if I can reproduce it.

Sam problem, but I don't have to change anything.it will do it randomly. It seems to be getting worse. I key the mike the red light comes on on the 6300 and nothing happens.If I unkey and key again and then it tx. But recently It takes keying and unkeying several times to get it to tx.

I'm having a similar problem with my 6300 on 1.4.11. Sometimes I key the mike and it goes into transmit but no output. I unkey the mike and try again and it has output. Same thing happening with two different computers.

I wonder if this is the same as the "won't transmit" situation I see from time to time?  I'll try to remember the "close pan, open pan" sequence.  Normally I shut down SSDR and restart.  If closing and opening a pan solves the problem, I'll try to get back to this thread and report my experience.
