The ICOM radio interface has been broken for some time (CT 9.6x). I
reported it last year. It was supposed to have been fixed in CT 9.68,
but wasn't. I have the same problem with my IC-735 that you describe
with your IC-761.
The biggest annoyance with this problem is on 40m. I remember to set VFO
A to LSB, but often forget to set VFO B to LSB when running split. Hard
to work DX, when you are calling on the wrong mode.
