Model Dell XPS 8900
Operating System - Windows 10 Home
CPU - i7 6700
Memory - 32 GB
Video Card NVidia GeForce GTX 745
Vassal version - 3.2.16
Java version - 1.8.0_91-b14
Vassal module name and version - Tunisia II 1.0

Masking is enabled for most of the counters in the module and controlled
by specifying which sides can mask a particular counter.

In Global Options, the 'Allow non-owners to unmask pieces' is set to
'User Preference Settings'

In preferences, both players have checked the 'Opponents can unmask my
pieces' option.

Any ideas what is preventing the players from unmasking?

However, when one side masks a counter, saves the vlog/vsav file, and
then sends it to his opponent, 
the opponent has been unable to unmask the counter (the shortcut option
does not appear when they right-click the counter).

If I change the 'Allow non-owners to unmask pieces' Global Option to
'Always' it doesn't appear to work either.
