Section view in I6 sp1

I'm having problems with sectioning an assembly in Inventor version 6 sp1, which I believe worked correctly in version 5.3. I have a simple round part with twelve evenly spaced tapped holes (in a polar pattern) and twelve bolts. I define the section cut to start horizontally thru the bolt at 3 o'clock, to the center of the part, then at an angle that passes thru the bolt at 10 o'clock. At this point, every looks great. I then "show contents" in the base view, select all the bolts, and turn off "section" for these parts. The bolts at the 10 o'clock position and 11 o'clock position no longer appear in the section view! I expected the bolts to appear in the section view, just not sectioned. Can anyone else produce the same results? Am I doing something wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I had the same problem and was told that  5.3
did sectioning wrong.  6 is how it should be. I don't know a work around
though.  Sorry

What you are seeing is not the correct or expected
behavior.  I have the issue logged internally.  This happens only
on aligned section views.  Thank you!
