Could it be that you made the change to the integration branch yesterday 
(Saturday)?  When I pulled the sources yesterday (my time) and built the 1.8.0 
GAR, I did not get the patch.  Dave De Coons and I had a conversation about it, 
and I tried again today (Sunday, my time) and I got the changes.

Dave and I just want to be sure that this fix gets into the next RC and Release 
as we are having to deal with the new 6400 and 6600 users who can’t make WSJT-X 
work.  Flex started shipping 6400s and 6600s in bulk last week so when UPS does 
its part, this problem is going to ramp right up.  Dave has a patched WSJTX 
executable, I have a patched full-up installer, but getting the new users to 
pointed to them will remain a challenge.

Hi David,

I update the Hamlib sources to the latest master branch HEAD when I make
a release kit. There will be a WSJT-X release candidate for the new
DX-pedition FT8 enhancements quite soon. I have pushed the latest Hamlib
master branch changes to my fork's integration branch so anyone building
from WSJT-X sources should pick up the latest Hamlib changes. This
includes IC-7610 support as well as your FlexRadio updates if anyone
wants to try them out.
