Possibly - but until you test such a thing, a statement either way is 
just conjecture... Hence why we are testing it!

Admittedly, this was perhaps a slightly riskier test then something like 
the handler menu; although had it actually *only* affected people who 
were still in 'first run' mode... No-one on this list would have 
probably noticed, thus it would not have occasioned any comment.

There will be an RC-3 which fixes that problem at least - whether or not 
the auto-backdrop will be kept (in first run mode) will be largely down 
to what the analysis of results of the testing say.

Warmest Regards,
