Unwanted transparent (checkered) background with camera views

Due to the fact that it is not possible to 'render' just the wirefame outline of a model in PV360 (i realise that you can do this with contour settings, but it renders the whole thing behind the scenes and therefore takes ages), I tend to take screengrabs to show to clients at early stages during the development process.

However...  for some reason with some (large?) assemblies whenever you are looking through a Camera view in wireframe, the background is checkered. Even if the scene is set to a coloured background. The render window is as it should be, but the graphics windows is checkered. This little issue means that I can't use a screen grab, which is really annoying for a big interior scene with hundreds/thousands of parts.

This is not always the case... i think it may be something to do with working in large assembly mode.

Any ideas anyone? Thanks in advance.
