Hi --- having problems getting soft shadows on extruded 3D shapes.

Shapes are generated by importing AI file / then generate shape from layer ( delete AI file etc ) --

All goes according to plan until I go to the 'shadow diffuse' option and it does nothing ...

Looks like a bug to me anybody know the answer to this one please?

It's working fine for me. If your ray-tracing quality (comp settings>advanced>options) is set to 1 (draft) then diffusion is disabled so you'll need to set it to something higher. 8 works pretty well without slowing things down too much.
