Micron scale sketching problem

I'm trying to draw a micro-resistor beam which has total dimension of about 4x3x25um in size. I've set the units in document properties to microns but when I start sketching lines of a few microns in length they don't get displayed right.

Often the lines disappear, even though I know they are still there because if I hover the mouse over where they are they get highlighted so that I can see them briefly. Also when I exit the sketch I can see the endpoints but not the lines!

The dimension units are the only thing I have change so is there anything else I should be changing for drawings on this scale?

The problem seems intermittent because sometimes the lines are ok and sometimes there not and sometimes only a few of them are displayed!
