Yeah...reported this a month ago... as well as other TDB/SID backend probs:

I wasn't sure if it was a 3.6 problem or some type of cockpit error, but 
both emails
were ignored.  -- so the problem was known about nearly a month ago, but 
my input
wasn't considered valid without "knowing what the problem was"...

Had one case that I found that gave corrupted packets that I could show 
in a trace.
That one got fixed...

But w/out hard details, they are busy folk...
