Mates switching

Hi. I am having a problem with mating. I have around 5000 mates in an assembly, and it ocassionally happens that mates such as angle switch to negative. It also happens with normal distance mates that they switch sides. It happens when I have more configurations.

 

Assuming I have a cylindrical shape and I have some item mated to central axis. Once I switch configuration, it changes mate to negative (changes sides). It hapens when I open an assembly file...

 

What is causing this problems and how do I avoid them? If anyone had the same problem and found a solution, please post it here.
