NAV AP "Arrived at Way Point" Question

This is an odd one and probably a very simple answer, but I am stumped. Situation is OpenCPN 4.0 driving a Furuno NavPilot 500 autopilot for route navigation. AP works fine in Auto mode. This system as worked in NAV all last year and until about mid-July this year. At that point, the AP would throw an "Arrived at Waypoint" alert when any route is activated. The AP is set to the correct input (from OpenCPN) and OpenCPN is configed to output for AP on the appropriate com port and with the appropriate NMEA sentences. Nothing has physically or config changed (that I am able to figure out) with the exception of the replacement of the AIS receiver with a transponder this year. The NAV function was working with the new transponder for about a month.

I have tried any number of permutations to determine what's up here, but keep hitting a brick wall. Looking for a list of things to try to work down thru, as my list has come up dry. Ideas? Anyone see this type of thing before?
