[chirp_users] VX-6R Problems

I am trying to use Chirp to program my Yaesu VX-6R HT.  I have two 
problems with the VX-6R.

1) I cannot import a CSV file to my VX-6R image in Chirp.  When I try to 
import the CSV, it appears to succeed, but none of the new memory 
locations are put into the image file.  Note, I have 24 memories in the 
image and am trying to import 100+ memories that exist in various ranges 
(1-24, 200-250, 300-325, etc.) in the CSV.

2) When I write the memories to the the VX-6R, the memories are all 
unmasked (hidden) except the memories that existed before the write.  If 
I manually mask (show) the memories and then use Chirp to write the 
memories again, they revert back to being unmasked (hidden).  I know the 
new memories are there.  I just can't see them.

I am using Chirp v 0.3.0 on Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.  Chirp is 
working great with my Kenwood D-710a.  It is just the VX-6R that is 
giving me problems.

Any thoughts on what I am missing?  It is probably something obvious 
that I just am not seeing.
