    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with us.  I reviewed it with my development team and it appears that a defect has been created to resolve this issue.  The defect number for this is MFT-10047 and our developers will provide that fix to you when the issue has been corrected.  Because this isn't technically an enhancement request I'll close this request out as being a defect, but please don't hesitate to use this tool again if you think of changes that we could consider.
