using tkemc GUI. axis labels change in Auto mode

     I'm running LinuxCNC v 2.8.4.  It is a three-axis mill with brush DC servomotors and encoders, a classic machine.  I use a VitalSystems Motenc-Lite interface board.
     In my motenc.ini file, in the [DISPLAY] section, the display is specified as tkemc ... like the machine, a classic interface.
     Everything works.  The machine enables, homes, runs in Manual and Auto modes.
     Here's the weird thing:  When I'm in Manual mode, the three axis labels are (in big black letters) X Y Z.  When I change into Auto mode or MDI mode, those axis labels change to (in big black numbers) 0 1 2.
     That's one thing, then the other is that when I change into Auto mode or MDI mode, the radio buttons for choosing Relative or Machine position is greyed out.  I can't choose.
     I figure there's a configuration file someplace that governs this stuff, so I'm posting this query under "Basic Configuration."  Also, I couldn't find a tkemc category in the GUI forum.
     If anyone has guidance for me, I'm all ears.
     Thanks.
