Placing an Inhibit on a device is preventing manual operations on the device

As per the 2.3 User Guide, in SCADA summary, Inhibit sets the inhibit quality code for the selected SCADA measurement and this suppresses any new updates from SCADA. However, on testing this on a 2.3 environment, once I inhibit the SCADA device, not only does it stop the SCADA Update coming through from SCADA but it also prevents the NMS user from isolating or securing the inhibited device from the Control Tool.
You should be able to Isolate a INHIBITED device

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Find an open SCADA switch, or open a closed SCADA switch
2. Inhibit the Topology Status point for the switch.
3. In the Control Tool, Isolate the switch
This will fail.
