"location" option not working as expected

Question

I've set "location" to "preview" and would have expected to get a rectangle drawed around the very first motion detetcted in the motion jpegs. Allthough, only "on" or "off" seems to work and "preview" has no effect. Settings:

Answer

'locate preview' only works if 'output_normal' is set to either 'first' or 'best'.
