Thanks for running through the repro scenario, greatly appreciated. Unfortunately I did not save a copy of the project in its disturbed state and, since I saved it (after having re-arranged the group tracks), I cannot reproduce the problem which is decidedly poor practice on my part.
I gather that neither you nor Steinberg can reproduce this problem therefore I imagine it must have something to do with having created the project in 7.0.0, updating it 7.0.1 and then 7.0.2.
In any event, if I am the only one reporting the problem it must be on my side somewhere.
Thanks for the assistance and willingness to assist!
