I'm specifically referring to the new 6" coil and it's apparent fondness for rusty square nails even with the iron bias set to 9. I have no idea what v1.5 was like with the 6", as I just got the coil 2 days ago and I had already been running v1.75. However, I can say this, I hardly ever dug rusty nails with the stock coil with either version of the software. It's something about that 6" coil.

Honestly, had I been checking targets with the AM/horseshoe button, I probably wouldn't have dug any of the nails, but I generally forget about that function. When I get a good signal I rotate 90, and if it still sounds good I dig, and that's what I experienced with the nails. I will have to start checking targets with AM when using the 6" coil from now on.
