Ever since I upgraded to the new 9.2.4 release I am having issues with the autopilot capturing the hold.  The departure procedure from my home airport is to climb over the airport in a shuttle over the VOR.  I always program this shuttle climb hold as the first leg of my flight plan in the FMS.  After takeoff I hand fly towards the VOR and then engage the DFC100. The system used to capture the hold automatically and the DFC100 would climb to the necessary altitude.  Now even though I press NAV on the DFC100 and the hold is in Magenta on the FMS, the plane flies straight through the hold.  I even press NAV twice to ensure I am not in HDG mode and yet it will not capture the HOLD.  I am forced to do this manually and when I do press NAV in the hold the system wants to jump to the next let of the flight plan.  Has anyone else noticed this behaviour and is there a reason this behaviour changed with the new software release?
Thanks, John
