IIS Custom Field Rename .log Files, Breaks SmartConnector

Hello,  using IIS smart connector 7.1.4 on a Windows 2012 server box collecting IIS logs.  I had to add a custom field for collecting the true client IP address and in doing so, windows appends "_x" to the log file - so "u_ex15121113.log" becomes "u_ex15121113_x.log". 

The agent.log file reports "Unable to init parser due to lack of file [D:\inetpub\logs\LogFiles\W3SVC1\U_EX15121113.log], will wait for [5] seconds and retry"

It's obvious it's expecting the old naming format without the "_x" appended, but all my logs have it since adding a custom field.  Does anyone know how to fix this?
