Well, I've checked it out with the new version (1.11u) and the problem is still there.
Let me post a image to illustrate (it may take a second or two to load)...
What concerns me is that the bloom/glare looses all it's warm reddish orange color and fades to the point where it is very weak and white-ish.
I have tried this with Direct Light, Pathtracing & PMC, and I have let in run out to 12,000 sample and the color remains unchanged from the 1,000 sample example.
Any idea what might be causing this or how I might correct it.
(P.S. I have included the last image as a color reference only and I realize that the exposure is significantly different.)
