Cut draft angle preview wrong?

When making a rectangular (or any shape) cut thru a solid body with a draft angle, the result matches the preview.

 

 

 

But when you select "Flip side to cut," the result is the exact opposite of the preview.

 

 

I can rationalize the behavior of inward vs. outward from the perspective of what SWX considers the inside and outside surfaces of the body but I cannot resolve why the preview is wrong.  If the draft angle is very small, say 1/2 degree, you may not notice the discrepancy.

 

Anyone else come across this?  Zed, do we have a bug?
