SX100 IS 1.00B rotary selector and green arrows issue

Hello ALL,
I have an SX 100 IS 1.00b, with the following problem - small green arrows are in the wrong place. This problem exists from the very beginning (when I started CHDK), I tested with 0.9.6-710 and 0.9.8-788 also, same results.

My results:
- The camera shows the green arrows WHERE THE PREVIOUS mode wanted to.
Examples:
- I switch on cam in Av mode, I cannot change F value, nor eV.
(CONCLUSION: Cannot change anything, because previous was "off" mode)
- Now I change to Tv mode. Now I can change eV and an empty value between shutter speed and eV (position of F but no number and and does not change anything if I turn lower or higher) BUT I cannot change the shutter speed.
(CONCLUSION: Can change eV and position of F because previous mode was Av).
- If I change to P mode, I can change eV and an empty value in the position of shutter speed.
(CONCLUSION: Can change eV and position of shutter speed because the previous mode was Tv.

The same situation with all modes.

My workaround was:
Change mode and immediately back to my desired mode.
(CONCLUSION: Can change values which is approptiate for the desired mode, because the previous mode was the same...)

BUT the following workaround is better (tried and worked - until next switch on -  :-[ ).
1. Swith on camera (to play mode than record mode or record mode immediatelly - indifferent);
2. Switch to play mode with play button (when the lenses are already out);
3. Switch back to record mode with the play button again.

Probably this logic could help who has programming ability and willing to change this issue...

thanks thanks thanks.
