Need to use System Timestamp Cubase 8.0.30

Windows 8.1
Cubase 8.0.30
Akai, RME, and MIDI Over LAN MIDI Drivers

This is an issue for me, but probably not an issue with Cubase:
My MIDI routing sometimes includes sending MIDI in to Cubase Instrument/MIDI tracks via a MIDI Over LAN loopback port. These ports are signed as DirectMusic Devices.

Upon updating to Cubase 8.0.30 MIDI note input would be recorded as short notes aligned with the first note input. Enabling "Use System Timestamp for ‘DirectMusic’ Inputs in Device Setup>MIDI>MIDI Port Setup resolved the issue.

Not sure whether this is related to the 8.0.30 update.
Has anyone had a similar experience?
