Simulation not showing collisions when tool collides with Soft Jaws?

Ok so I got 2 operations. Op 1 that doesn't use soft jaws and Op 2 that does:

When I simulate both operations at the same time, there is no collision detected when my tool mills into my softjaws (though there is a collision detected [that is a false positive] at the beginning of the simulation at the start of Op1):

 

If I just run a simulation of the second op, the collisions do appear:

I think this has always been the case when simulating multiple operations. It just takes the fixtures from the first setup.

 

It's hugely annoying as if you have any fixtures in the first setup then the tools collide with them when simulating the second setup. 

 

I'd like to see this fixed

@mattdlr89 is correct in his assessment. Always done it, and yes, I too would like to see this improved upon.

Something else that would be nice is in cases like below where a separate piece is created; When the simulation moves on to a proceeding setup:

 

1: I have the ability to hide/show it (with the default being shown so I know I'll have a potential projectile when I run multiple simulations at once, not just when running a simulation of the one setup that creates that piece).

 

2A: Maybe the simulation detects a collision as soon as the tool separates it from the rest of the part/stock but after that initial collision it doesn't trigger any further collisions. Or:

 

2B: It doesn't create a collision once the simulation moves on to the next operation as it's not getting clamped in the vise along with the part.
