Unable to delete links using the "Remove Requirement Links from step"

I have a step within a Test Script that contains a lot of requirement links that I would like to remove.

When I use the "Remove Requirement Links from step" action then first seem to disappear (after hitting save).

But when the script is refreshed all the links reappear.

Does anyone know why these links keep reappearing?

Please confirm whether you are using the formal release or the beta(RC1, RC2 etc) one.

(some similar behaviors reported and fixed in v4.0.6 as well:

From your links the following worked (turning off this option) to get the requirement links deleted:

I narrowed down the scenario, this behavior only happens when the project property's test script preference has the following option turned on

Sync Requirement links to Test Case When Test Script is saved every time

 Thanks again for your help!!!
