Default Pro Tools 9 "Pausing" when I press "Play" with Focusrite Scarlett interface

I am trying to get my new Focusrite Scarlett 18i6 to work with Pro Tools and have had absolutely no luck. I have been going back and forth with Focusrite on this issue and they said that they think maybe it is a ProTools issue...not totally sure, but I figured I'd check here.

Here's my setup:
Imac 2.5GHz Intel Core i5
OSX 10.6.6 (Snow Leopard)
Pro Tools 9.0.5
Other USB devices: iLok and Logitech Rollerball mouse.
Universal Audio UAD2 Satellite (connected via Firewire 800)

The Scarlett shows up in all mu ProTools HW profiles and everything, it works fine with iTunes and Reason 5, but when I try to play something in ProTools, the "Play" and "Stop" buttons on the transport blink for a few seconds, the word "Pause" shows up in the lower left corner of the Protools Window blinking, and no audio plays at all, Pro Tools just stops after about 2 seconds of all this blinking and pausing stuff.

ProTools works fine with my old MBox 2, but I was really hoping to get a new interface working with this, since they opened it up to 3rd party hardware. Any thoughts on what ProTool is doing in this situation?
