PATTERNED COMPONENTS

I just opened an assembly that was last opened in SP-1 as far as I can remember.
(currently SP-2.1) This is the second time this has happened since either 2.0 or 2.1
so Im thinkin its a bug. The problem: I have pattened cap screws in an assembly that are patterned from a patterned feature (c-bore) in a part model (sketch driven). All of a sudden the patterned cap screw has another cap screw patterned in a linear direction 1.375" along it's centerline axis. I do get the screw patterned in the rest of the c'bore locations, but they too are 1.375" above the c'bore.
These are not toolbox components and the seed component is inserted with concentric and coincident mates. This is the second file that I have opened that was saved in a previous SP and the same component has acted this way. I could not remedy it on the previous tool rather I went back and changed the patterned feature (c'bore) to fully dimensioned hole wizard feature and individually loaded 10 cap screws.

Anyone else notice this?
