Appointment attendee adds re-sends appt to all attendees

A Group of users (possibly more, but this group is vocal about it) are having problems with appointment edits in GW 2014. They create an initial appointment and later need to edit the appointment to add new people. Existing users are being notified of new users added to the appointment. No time change or location change has occurred – only new users added to the appointment.

To Create Appointment: They create the appointment and send to select users
To Edit the Appointment later: They right-click (or double-click) the appointment on the calendar, select edit, and add more people. Then they press Send.

Observation: No dialog-box option is given to send only to new users. User presses Send and appointment is just Sent.

Result: Original users are sent another email regarding the appointment. New users are sent an appointment request to accept or decline.

GW2014 no revision (Linux SLES 11)
Mailbox/Library Maintenance on all user mailboxes in question: Structure; Content/Fix Problems (Databases=User/Resources & Message)
Verified: appointment exists in originating user Sent folder (it has not been deleted from originating user)
GW Client Version: Mixed v12 & 2014. Will happens regardless of version sending to and from (2014->2014; 2014->2012) .

I’ve tried recreating the scenario from my mailbox to other test users. I am not experiencing this problem.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you

Sorry for the slow response. I've tested this every way I can imagine and am unable to duplicate your issue. I am, however, on GroupWise 2014 R2 SP1 with client build 124014
