Transparent part in an assembly; can't edit feature dimensions

Anyone else seen this?  I want to in-context edit a feature of an assembly part, so I double-click on the part's feature.  Fine, no problem - dimensons all editable.

 

However, if the part is transparent in the assembly (because I want a transparent part when editing it, or it's just transparent anyway) the dimensions that pop up on double-clicking the feature aren't accessible.  Yes, I could do a proper edit in context but the part then isn't transparent.  This is regardless of assembly-transparency settings I reckon, as those are for the other assembly parts, not the one being edited.

 

I do this a lot at the moment and cannot remember seeing it in earlier (than 2011) versions...
