3700 v 1.1 Data extractor/Change Poly Wizard Conflict?

I have never had this happen here, probably due to the fact that we do
not usually run the Change Polymer Wizard.    A Bubble remove or Cuvette
flush or nothing at all works best when changing polymer and is much
faster.  We do, however, have trouble linking plates (on V1.1) with the
Data Extractor open,   this is another weird little bug.   PE thinks
they have a fix for the intermittant, pausing out during sample transfer
error (usually run #2).   They sent us an EXE file that shuts off the
diagnostics port on the instrument (which they belive is causing the
instrument to pause out).  We have not yet confirmed that this is a
"solid fix" though.
