Found this via another forum:

It recommends enabling CV and disabling all CV settings until more familiar with the system and its interactions.

Thanks again for your help in solving this issue.

I would take that doc with a pinch of salt. As I've said in many threads - it's not very good and in some places just plain wrong.

Your original CV Distance of 1.0 means you're allowing (not telling) CV to drop to 1 unit/min if it needs to which is (as you've found on your machine) just about the same as exact stop. Setting this to your commanded feedrate is pointless - CV can't do that by it's very nature.
