Weldment cutlist description woes

Playing with 2010 SP1...

 

I opened an old weldment (SW2009) and the cutlist displayed the description as the actual reference name of the dimension and not the evaluated value, this I think was a problem in a previous version.

So all my flat plates in the weldment now have very long descriptions which mean nothing in the sense of manufacture. I played around and could not get a clear idea of what was happening. I did manage to get the correct values to display but had to modify the feature after performing an update to get it into the cutlist.

Obviously there is no problem if the description is not parametric.

Another observation is the reference in the value/expression field keeps changing when editing the properties of the cutlist (on my machine) and is not always the same in each of the tabs.

 

Does anyone else see this behaviour?

 

The attached (2010) file exhibits this behaviour on my machine.
