Linear Pattern of Cut Sweep does not respect Direction Vector

I have a Swept Cut with a path alignment type set to Direction Vector.

This is what the cut looks like WITH the Direction Vector set.

This is what the cut looks like WITHOUT the Direction Vector set.


So far so good.


Then I insert a linear pattern and choose the cut sweep feature as the feature to pattern.

The preview looks nice.


The result doesn't look nice. It doesn't seem to respect the Direction Vector.


Initially, I thought that the issue was because of using an edge for the Direction Vector, which might get affected when the pattern is inserted, but I've also tried using an axis, as you can see in the example, and the result is the same.



Using SolidWorks 2014.

Example file attached.



Appreciate the help with this one
