How are Arrowhead locations calculated when using Auto-Balloon Command?

How are arrowhead attachement locations calculated when using the Automatic Balloon command?  Arrowheads seem to attached to objects at rather strange places!

 

I normally use auto-ballooning to place balloons within a drawing and then "season to taste".  Is there a way to control how and where the arrowhead gets attached to an object?

 

Any light that can be shed on this subject would be most welcomed!

There is no way that I know of to control where the balloon leaders attach.

I usually don't use Auto-Balloon for that reason, seems easier to do them one at a time.

I think that it might be time for someone from the Inventor Drawing Developement Team to chime in.  Surely there must be a set of rules in place that determines where on a part/component the arrowhead gets attached.
