No matter what I select for the security question I continue to get the following Exception - "Please enter a different security question."  Is this a web.config issue or a Wizard issue?  Where should I start to look, in resolving this problem?

Are you passing commas "," in your question?
Usually that's what I can think might be giving an error.
Or can you share your web.config membership setting?

No I do not have any commas, in any of my questions.

Per your request, here is my Membership section of web.config.
<membership defaultProvider="SqlProvider" userIsOnlineTimeWindow="15">

			<providers>

				<remove name="AspNetSqlProvider"/>

				<add name="SqlProvider" type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider" connectionStringName="rmeaspnetdbConnectionString" applicationName="/" enablePasswordRetrieval="false" enablePasswordReset="true" requiresQuestionAndAnswer="true" requiresUniqueEmail="true" maxInvalidPasswordAttempts="5" passwordFormat="Hashed"/>

			</providers>

		</membership>

web.config looks fine. One more question...are you doing something custom when using CreateUserWizard?

In my form I was capturing Security Question using a DropDownList and Hiding Textbox 'Question'.  Added in code behind the selection from DDL field to textbox.
            Dim SecurityQuestionTB As DropDownList = CType(CreateUserWizardStep2.ContentTemplateContainer.FindControl("QuestionDDL"), DropDownList)

            Dim QuestionTB As TextBox = CType(CreateUserWizardStep2.ContentTemplateContainer.FindControl("Question"), TextBox)

            QuestionTB.Text = SecurityQuestionTB.Text
