I haven't noticed that problem with mine.

I believe the AGC time constants are fixed, though perhaps mode-
dependent.  Note that the S-meter only responds to the main receiver,
even when you are listening to the sub-receiver.  That may make it look
like the sub-receiver is being overloaded, but doesn't affect what it
sounds like.  Interestingly, there actually is a sub-receiver S-meter output,
used for alignment, but there's no way to read it on the front panel meter.
One could connect an external meter, I suppose.
