Constant errors about "ar_radius" in Houdini console with disk lights?

Greetings to all.

Is there some reason why I keep getting the following message in HtoA when using disk lights?

00:00:00 832MB WARNING | [htoa.node.node] [soho] Parameter not found: radius (ar_radius)

I don't seem to get the same error with point lights, distant, spot, quad, cylinder, skydome, or photometric lights. It's just the disk lights that cause the console to pop up with that particular warning.

Cheers,

-CMPX

I don't get those warnings for disc lights, just for points or curves.

And usually it's not a problem.
