Toolpath simulation: Face is colored half in red but should be [almost] fully blue

The toolpath for my dovetail operation has 10 thou radial stock to leave. This means the toolpath simulation [while setting a stock generation tolerance of anything less than 10 thou (for example: .002", .004" .005" .007" like I've tested)] should make the highlighted face [shown below] blue (as there is more than .007" of stock left due to the 10 thou stock to leave.):

Red indicated too much stock was removed but as you can see below there is extra stock and the stock accuracy is set to the most accurate:

Yeah, that's an odd one. I'll get a ticket logged
