Solidworks 2017: Assembly sketches rebuild intersection curves no more.

It looks like that assembly features rebuilding algorithm was changed somewhere in between Solidworks 2015 and 2017 and now at least one feature is broken.


Assembly description:

There are two parts: "Base" and "Pattern". I want to create a cutout in Base with shape of Pattern. I create a sketch in assembly and insert "Intersection Curve" feature selecting the Pattern. Then I make an Extruded Cut with this sketch.


Expected behaviour:

When I drag the Pattern, the Extruded Cut should also move with it.

It should also work with different pattern geometry and different mates in assembly configurations.


Solidworks 2015:

It works. Assembly rebuild (Ctrl+B) is needed to rearrange the cut.


Solidworks 2017:

The Cut freezes on its first position and rebuild do not help (both Ctrl+B and Ctrl+Q). Only workaround is to open and change the sketch.
