MU stopped on a non-Accumulating Line

I've found a problem in Plant Simulation using the attribute Stopped of a MU when it's modified on a Line not Accumulating.

When you stops a MU:

@.stopped := true;

The attribute currentSpeed of the Line is set to 0 m/s.


When the MU is unstopped:

@.stopped := false;

Attribute currentSpeed of the line remains set to 0 and no MU is moved till there's a state change (like a Fail, Pause, or Unplanned, etc.). Or when you click Apply on the property window of the Line.


Attached there's a little example that simulates the issue.
Plant Simulation version utilized 11.2.2


! Using version 10.x there's no this problem.


Is it possible to correct this annoying problem?


For anyone needing: a possible work-around is to stop directly the Line and unstop it when the needed conditions are met.

Or (I don't remember if it works correctly) reset the current speed enabling and disabiling Acceleration).


Of course it would be better to have the possibility to stop the MU directly without troubles, like in ver. 10.


Thank you Robot Happy
