Trimming a AL profile extrusion

Hi,

 

I am trying to building a weldment using different Maytec profiles and have encountered issues with the trimming process. The extrusion will stop on some faces, but it will continue up to others. How do I make it stop the extrusion on the first face it hits?

The second picture shows what happens after I perform a  "Trim/Extend". If you look closely a little part of the profile continues in to the slot of the body that was used to trim it.

The only way I have found to avoid this is by adding a weld gap. I don't want a weld gap though. Is there something I am missing on the "Trim/Extend" feature?
