Unfortunately, I went about creating the part differently that you did (there's more to the model than the picture showed). Using the method that you posted would not be 'simple'. It is just a model of a coupling anyway. I can stand to leave the fillet out.
I would hope that Autodesk would look into fixing the problem. You don't get the same result if the bounding surfaces are flat.
