Autologin issues (via command-line)

description

I have created two encrypted volumes, one is a file (test.hc) and the other is an entire partition. I have added them as Favorites (not system though, as reported in other posts) and i executed VC from a program i've created. For my tests, the following bullets stand:
  1. The command line for VC is "veracrypt.exe /q preferences /a favorites".
  2. The encryption in both cases includes a different-than-default PIM.
  3. The PIM and the password are the same for both volumes.
  4. In preferences, "Temporary Cache password..." is checked.
  5. In preferences, "Include PIM when caching password" is checked.
Here are two tests i performed:
I saved both volumes in Favorites, also entering the PIM in each Favorites entry. When executing the command described in (1), i was asked once for the password (for the first volume) and then VC auto-logged in both volumes normally.

I then removed the PIM from both volume entries in Favorites. When executing the command described in (1), i was asked once for the password (for the first volume) and then VC auto-logged in the first volume, tried to login the 2nd one and apparently failed because after that, it again asked for the password and PIM of the 2nd volume. When i entered both of them, it logged-in fine.

It seems that (5) does not work properly in this case.

Tried under Win7SP1x64
