Snare Drum roll playback issue

I'm trying to input a snare drum roll into Sibelius 6. I am using VDL 2.5.5 and Kontakt 4, as well as the VDL Template 7.0a from The Write Score. Further system info is in my signature. I have inputted the roll with three slashes, however, the roll continues to play back forever, instead of just the length of the note (a quarter note). This behavior only occurs when I have either two or three slashes on the note. If I change it to one slash it plays as eighth notes (as expected) and if I change it to a buzz roll (z on stem) it sounds horrendous but does play the correct length. Is there something I need to set so that that roll ";turns off"; at the right time?
Exactly which instrument is this?

Also, please attach a screen shot of your Playback Configuration.
It is the Concert Band Combo instrument specifically. I have attached my Playback Configuration.

Config looks good. Can you send me the .sib file in question? (Sent you a PM.)
Hi Matt

In bars 27 and 32 you're using the Staff Text ";l.v.";. This is what's causing the tied roll to continue. For options to remedy, please read [url=]this post[/url] and the one that follows it. (Read the entire thread if you'd like to have the full context.)

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Perfect, thank you very much. Added ";~non-l.v."; into the technique text and it worked like a charm.
