Hi Dan,
I believe that bug (#9018) was fixed about 3 months ago -- you would need build number 32002 or greater.

I am not completely sure whether the session with ambient would need to be saved from such a version, or whether it would simply work to restore the session in that version.  At most, you would need to open the session, fix up the lighting and re-save in the newer version.

If you are still experiencing the problem with sessions saved/restored in the newer version, however, do let  us know via "Help... Report a Bug" in the  menu.  Thanks,

I can fix it by going to the effects menu and switching out of and back into ambient, so its not a big deal. But in case its a quick fix, I wanted to report the issue.
