871, SDM default rules not appearing

Hi I recently bought a new 871.

It seems to work fine, but I am having some trouble with SDM 2.2 - when I try to create an advanced firewall, I am unable to select anything except for SDM_Low....the slider appears, but SDM_Medium and High are grayed out and unselectable.

I have pasted the output from show version below.

Has anyone seen this before and if so how did you solve this?

I have contacted Cisco and an engineer was able to reproduce this, but they have been slow to respond and I would like to know whats going on. In and of itself this iss not a huge deal, I can create my own inspection rules, but if this isnt working it makes me wonder if other things arent working correctly also.

Thanks in advance for your help,
