The closest I could come to that was the flash not recognizing the switch right away. If I use the slide switch on the back to go from trailing curtain to front curtain, the icon on the display shows trailing curtain sync until I do something else like press the shutter button. I thought you might have set the camera flash settings and those were overriding the flash settings, but it doesn't look like that happens.
