The CS510 solution also has some very saline water in narrow fjords  
around Antarctica.  I think what might be happening is that ice is  
acting as a salinity pump, taking freshwater out of the fjord, when  
ice dynamics are turned on, but there is no mechanism for flushing the  
salty water out in the model ocean.  Let me know what you find.  D.
