Update 8:47 PM: after looking at it with a logic analyzer, it appears the first byte of the read buffer is firing off immediately...  is there no way to control the delay on the read buffer being exposed so quickly? Im running i2c at 100khz and I find it odd that I cant get in front of the byte.

Note, the CyDelay(1000)(line: 25) occurs after 0xFF in the above capture, I don't think its possible to disable the interrupts fast enough.

Original Post:

I am using the psoc5lp as a slave and when exposing the read buffer for the master, it always uses the previous value of the last transaction in index #0.  I see there are other users having the same issue.  I am in belief now there is is a flaw with read buffer or something is not documented correctly with the i2c component. I have attached the project to this post.  I have attached an image of the bridge control showing the output, It first writes a command to slave 60 and reads back at 61.  The first byte shows 0xFF while it should be 0x0A.  The delay of 1 second demonstrates that there is no timing issue with the first byte being read faster than the succeeding bytes.
