Dear Feng,

[I'm CCing your message to ncl-talk because we're encouraging people to email ncl-talk and not individual developers.]

No, we haven't fixed this problem yet, but I've added your email to the ticket for further reference.

It's at a low priority right now because of the work-around. Let ncl-talk know if this becomes an issue for you.

Thanks,

--Mary
