Default Resources do not go back to being "Offschedule" when they are preempted from the break


I've ran into a problem where I specified in the down functionality of the shift schedule to allow a resource to be preempted away from break and allow them to finish break late ("YES" for both options) but what I find is that when a resource is preempted from the break once it has finished carrying out the preempting task it does not go back to the break, it just keeps waiting for a task. Has anyone encountered this problem?

Thanks in advance,

The preempted task sequence associated with the original Down Function call is put in a queue somewhere (most likely in the staff member's own tasksequencequeue), but it sounds like it is not at the top of the queue when the staff member finishes the preempting task. Could be a matter of priorities, or possibly a bug, but I can't tell without the model.
