The only reason I've not mentioned much about it here is that it takes a lot of time to investigate, copy, hack down multiple paths in order to make sure I have all the details down and proper and didn't make a mistake, but that is where I left off before having to get on with other priorities. The annoyance is that if I didn't make a mistake, I shouldn't have to deal with this since theming/UI/hacking isn't something I generally have time for.

Until then, I have to stay on V5 (I do suspect lowellben is hitting at least some stuff similar to what I am). That said it would be wonderful if I could export part of the config, import and switch themes between V5 and V6 but that has not occurred for me thus far.
Oof, that's rough.

I count myself lucky that I haven't run into any problems like that yet.
