UPDATE:

I went back and reviewed all of the literature on CLS & Commander Mode (in the "--" double-dash mode):

"The built-in (pop-up) flash should be turned off. Even though it is off during the actual exposure, it still sends out light pulses to control all of the Remote flashes in the system."

See, The Nikon Creative Lighting System, 2nd edition, page 223, figure 10.5.

This indicates that I too have this issue since both flashes did fire even though I was in "--" double-dash mode ??????

Or am I missing something? If I am, someone please let me know.

Future software update Nikon ??????
