I had a merge replication publication set up with dynamic row filtering on most of the articles.  I also have defined and generated dynamic snapshots and expected those to be used during a re-init operation.  What I noticed is if I choose to upload changes fropm subscriber to publisher when performing the re-init, it does not use the dynamic snapshot and performs a full enumeration.  If I choose not to upload changes from subscriber to publisher it does use the dynamic snapshot and completes much faster.  I would like to know if this is expected behavior and a explanation on why so I can communicate to my clients or if this is a bug of some sort
