Subject: Question about mbboDirect record

Folks,

I have a question about the mbboDirect record, specifically the
interaction of the .VAL and .B0-.BF fields.

On the mbbiDirect record the 	.VAL fields and .BO-.BF fields are
always consistent.

However, this does not seem to be the case with the mbboDirect record.
If I write to the .Bn fields of the mbboDirect record, the .VAL field
updates as expected.  However, the opposite is not true.  If I write to
.VAL field, the .Bn fields do not change.  This does not make sense to
me.

Can someone explain why this is so, or is it a bug?

Thanks,
Mark
