Hi StarCluster Community:

I just submitted an 'issue' (, but I thought I would mention this here as well, in case someone has any thoughts.

When using an AMI with volume type = General Purpose (SSD), I get (in debug.log):

2014-09-25 11:08:08,984 PID: 8599 - DEBUG - Forcing delete_on_termination for AMI: ami-083b8e60

The AMIs in question are clones of fully-StarCluster-functional volume type = Magnetic.
