Strange behaviour of Unify standalone with MIDI controller

Unify has until very recently worked entirely as expected with my SL mixface MIDI controller.  I have 8 sliders set up in a bank to transmit MIDI CC on Ch 1 using CC 1, 2, 4, 67, 84, 85, 86 and 87.  I now have a strange problem with the slider that is supposed to transmit CC67, in that Unify does not respond to it, there is no activity in the green light for the instrument layer, and nothing shows up on the MIDI monitor (all the others work fine).  I thought this meant that the slider in my unit had failed, but if I use it within my DAW, with Unify as a plugin, it is working fine.  And even more oddly, using other MIDI controllers to transmit CC67 (Maschine Jam, Akai MPK) also works fine in the standalone version of Unify.  I have tried rebooting the PC (Win 10) but the problem persists.  Can anyone think of an explanation for this?  It has worked fine before, but I don't know if it has worked since the last Unify update.  There is more for me to do in terms of trouble-shooting, but interested to see if any first reactions to this?

Thanks.

Ah OK - problem solved!  I had forgotten that I had started to create a MIDI controller file for my SL Mixface, and that was still lurking in the MIDI controller files directory.  I moved it out and the problem is fixed.  The Controller file is a work in progress, and CC67 was obviously assigned elsewhere.  Sorry for the diversion, but I guess this may help others who are as forgetful as me.
