Your short description statement that:

'Cannot use "CreateDataSet" with InternalCalc Fields'

is not correct. It is possible to use CreateDataSet on a CDS that contains persistent InternalCalc fields, as the first CreateDataSet call in your 'Steps' app demonstrates.

I am not convinced that the situation you describe is a bug, and not just a limitation of using InternalCalc fields with CreateDataSet.

Build the app created by your 'Steps'. Instead of running the app, right click on the CDS and click CreateDataSet from the context menu. Then close the CDS and right click again. You will see that the CreateDataSet menu item has been replaced by a 'Clear Data' item. The IDE prevents you from running CreateDataSet again.
