Mirrored lofted cut doesn't keep correct body

If a lofted cut is made in a part with separates it into 2 or more bodies (Figure 2) and then that lofted cut is mirrored (Figure 4), which again separates the part into 2 or more bodies (Figure 5), then which of the final bodies is keep can't be chosen. SolidWorks will keep one, delete the rest, and not give the user a say in which one it chooses. Am I missing something or is this a problem with SolidWorks? An example file is attached below.



     Figure 1. Initial part


     Figure 2. Lofted cut


     Figure 3. One body is selected to be kept


     Figure 4. Mirror of Lofted cut


     Figure 5. User is given no choice over which body is kept.


I am running: SolidWorks 2017 SP2.0, Windows 10, on a laptop, 8GB ram, HD Graphics 530 Graphics card, Intel Core i7-6700HQ CPU, with a know SolidWorks - graphics card incompatibility.
