log record autofile in 07.2

It appears that the autofile (fixture id) number does get into the log record using the 'tcm' login on version 07.2 on the 3070. Is this a known issue with 7.2, or with the 'tcm' account login?

I discovered the same thing when we attempted to use the autofile ID in logfiles and contacted Agilent about it. It's not just the tcm login, it's a problem that began at a certain software release level. I have found that the autofile ID is available in the testplan, just not in the log file. We print the autofile ID and system hostname out with fail tickets and that works fine still.
I have been told that this WILL be fixed! I think the term I heard from the support engineer on the phone was that they wouuld issue a 'hotfix'.
In the meantime, there is an official workaround (I have not tried this because it seems lame, if our data collection required it, I would.) The workaround is to unlock and lock the fixture inside the testplan, maybe try adding this cycle somewhere during the start up initialization (around version prompting, if you use that). Cycling the fixture is supposed to look up the autofile id and store it. Not sure if it is required per board or per run. Per board would be excruciatingly lame.
Just this morning I got a second, advertisement, response from Agilent informing that this issue will get fixed before the next complete software release is sent out.
So this issue will get fixed. Below is the text of the e-mail I received (note the sales talk!):
This letter is regarding a change request that was generated for an issue you have communicated to us. The reference number for that change request is CR33541 and a brief problem description is as follows:
As of 7.10pc, Log Board does not include the Fixture ID (autofile) in the @Batch log record.
This issue has been carefully reviewed and we have decided to address it appropriately. The change request is scheduled to be available for early distribution in Oct 2009 and for broad distribution in Dec 2009. This release date is only an estimate and is subjected to change without prior notice.
