Subject: limit switch fields in the motor record

Is there a reason that the xLS/RxLS limit switch fields in the motor 
record only work when the TDIR field's value indicates that the motor is 
or was last moving in the direction that would normally trigger the 
corresponding limit switch?

This means that that only way to know if a limit switch has REALLY been 
triggered is to monitor the bits in the MSTA field.

I am using version 6-9 of the motor record if that makes any difference.
