Circuitworks export doesn't keep keepout sketch in the right area

I'm trying to figure out Circuitworks. I have managed to get my file to export, but some of my keepouts are shifted. Here is what Circuitworks looks like:


Note the light blue circles are not concentric with the radii in my slots.


Here is what my SolidWorks file looks like:


The Solidworks sketch has these circles constrained concentric with the radii of the slots.


Any ideas why the CircuitWorks file doesn't have the keepouts concentric?


Something that is "special" about this assembly, my board.sldprt is mated to the default planes in my assembly so that it will be upside down compared to the default orientation of the part. The primary component side of my board (or top for the board designer) actually faces the ground. I had modeled the board with the secondary side "up" in default view. When I tried exporting that to circuitworks specifying my primary side as the "top" of the board, the view in CircuitWorks used the same top as my model. So, when that wasn't working the way I expected, I copied my files to a new directory to play with the board orientation.
