Material Color changes don't "Stick" Rhino V5 & nXt

Is anyone having the same problems with adjusting material color settings in Flamingo nXt under the latest release of Rhino 5 Beta?Starting with a new file, add an object then create a new Metal material for it and assign it either directly or by layer.  In my case =30, S=50, V=10.  Click OK then reopen the material properties and the Sat has changed to 51. Any further efforts to reset the three values go haywire after that.Any ideas?See More
