Issue with myDMX 3.0 dropping inbound Midi messages

Hoping someone has some insight here, or if this is a known bug, an idea when this will be fixed.

The issue I'm seeing is when multiple Midi messages are sent (I do this to turn on different scenes controlling different lights or attributes of lights), invariably not all Midi messages are received within myDMX.  I have tried sending Midi messages from MobileSheets (song/setlist android software) and also from my Line 6 Helix to myDMX 3.0 software.  In the case of MobileSheets, it's a direct USB connection to my laptop running myDMX.  In the case of my Helix, it's going out via a Yamaha MD-BT01 Bluetooth dongle connecting to a CME WidiBud USB connected to my laptop.  I've even tried a mio xc Midi to USB from my Helix to my laptop.

I can close myDMX and open MidiView (monitoring software) and consistently see all (in this case 6) Midi messages received.  But if I again open myDMX 3.0, and open the Midi watcher, I will only see 5, sometimes 3, sometimes 4, etc. messages.  It's not just the watcher, if I watch my scenes, I will not see all of the requested scenes turn on.

I'm otherwise very happy with the software and it's capabilities, but if I can't get Midi to reliably work, I'll have to go with something else.  I need to be able to design and control our show by sending Midi from either my song tablet, or my Helix.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
