Missing beam model reaction forces

Running a full beam model (not mixed mesh), and have between six and eight joint/nodes fixed for restraints.  The model solves properly with respect to the fixtures holding ability, but it will only display a random fraction of them in the 'List Result Force' section (between one and say five, whose sum doens't equal the model total so the other must be 'working').  I've double checked for duplicate nodes but nothing.  SW has been crashing as well when I try to select/deselect nodes to get a reading in the reaction force window.


I'm using SW2013 SP5.0, just wondering if this is a known issue or if it's a local thing with my setup.  I checked the KB with no luck (majority relate to mixed mesh reaction errors), and haven't talked to my VAR yet as I wanted to get a feel first.

 

Thanks!
