I see this over here also (on the 8000, with NS 3.1) and it 
is a bit odd, yes, but not that evil.  Sometimes I'll manually 
intervene in the Curves tool to move the black point to a 
few points below the darkest pixel.  Sometimes I just leave 
it that way and fix it up later in Photoshop.

Whatever it's doing, NS seems to do the right thing *most* 
of the time on my color negatives.  I haven't really learned 
how to outsmart it yet, nor do I feel any urgent need to 
"correct" its choices about color settins.
