Anyone else experiencing automation problems within Studio One 3.5.1?

For months I've been experiencing various problems when either copying automation parts or when I move an Event that has automation attached to it.

The problem that seems to reoccur most often is when I move an Event that has some automation written to it, the automation that's attached to the Event gets extra and unwanted automation added which I then have to undo and try to fix back to its original state.

Before I realised that this fault was occurring I kept wondering why my songs were sounding messed up after I had done a little rearranging but it turns out that it's because extra and unwanted automation was being written whenever I moved Events, but if I didn't have the automation view opened up I wouldn't realise this.

It also happens if I try to copy automation to another part of the song/timeline, not as bad or often as when an Event with automation is actually moved to another position but it does still occur quite frequently.

I have taken out a support ticket and sent details to Presonus but I got a reply stating that they were unable to replicate the problem which I find to be unbelievable as this is happening to me frequently and has been happening since I first started using Studio One 3.5.1 in July this year.

I've included the screenshots that I sent to Presonus support to show exactly what's going on and I would really appreciate if anyone else has an opinion or solution etc to this problem.

There is a heading at the top of each of the 4 small screenshots to explain what it is.

All of my software is up to date and I am running Studio One 3.5.143560 OSX x64 on an 8 core Mac Pro.

Thanks and take it easy,
