This could be a bug, but I did not find one.  I would try downgrading the switch to the next version below.

Did you delete the new IOS from flash? Verify that the old IOS is booting? Just making sure.

yes, apparently there is a patch type thing that will fix this. it was a bug with the original IOS that was installed when it was manufactured.

 

just waiting for where we bought our switches to relay this patch  or fix.
