13.06.4 support printed in 'mid air'

Need more details. Are you saying no plastic is coming out of the nozzle until it starts the 3rd pass/layer?

If so maybe the extruder retracted at the begining before printing and it takes a while for the plastic to catch up? Maybe something is wrong with your gcode?

Please explain more what the problem is.

    Sorry to have been so terse. I should have written "looking at the layers view"...

    The post was really a report of what I'd observed rather than a cry for help. I've learnt that if I (think that) I need support or a raft I'll have better success with 13.04 than with 13.06.4.

    Trying to understand why I looked at the layers view in both versions and posted about what I saw with 13.06.4

    I also have this problem. The raft/brim does not cover the entire projected area of the part, only where it touches the bedplate. Therefore, the supports start printing from the level of the top of the raft, which is in mid air for some of the area.
