Default MIDI drag and drop causes instrument track to drop channel

Okay, so I've tried this with all the plug-ins I have that have a MIDI drag-and-drop facility. Video example : https://youtu.be/SaJeQIwBr5Y

1. New session
2. New instrument track, choose new instrument with MIDI drag and drop facility (e.g. Stylus RMX, Strike, Superior Drummer...any others you can think of?)
3. Drag MIDI from plug-in to instrument track (note how the tick next to the channel drops from the MIDI output selector)
4. Save session and re-open
5. Instrument track will no longer have any MIDI channel assigned to it

The same thing also happens when you drag and drop using the Massey DRT plugin, which was causing me no end of swearing.

I will submit a bug report but not sure which plug-in is the best to use as an example? - Ideally one that a lot of people have obviously (!!)

Confirmed!

I've been wondering why my Superior tracks were dropping their midi inputs....

Thanks for checking this guys. Also seems to do the same when you drag and drop a .mid file straight from the desktop so I'm going to use that as my example for the AVID bug squashers.

Yes, but these are basic reliability bugs that should be addressed immediately.
