SW2010 suppresses mates on its own

I'm working with an assembly, and every so often I notice that parts are a little out of alignment. I look at the mates, and half of them are suppressed!  Is this some enhancement that I haven't heard about?

 

I opened this subassembly from a larger assembly where some components were loaded lightweight; could this have something to do with it?

 

I'm not sure if this is better or worse than the previous behavior. I'd be working with an assembly and more and more yellow flags would show up on mates saying that they were overdefining the assembly.  Even though I know there was nothing wrong with those mates.

 

What's going on here?
