Noninear Dynamic Analysis - Skipping time steps

Im a little confused and I am wondering if anybody had a similar problem:

 

I'm trying to solve a nonlinear dynamic analysis (impact w/ an initial velocity).  Everything was working grand until I lost all my work.  When I tried to recreate my previous results, I cannot get the solver to solve correctly.  I want it to run for 5798 timesteps, but it skips (to the best of my knowledge) 5,045 timesteps.

Did I define something wrong?  Is it pulling junk data from some temp file?  or is this just another flaw in solidworks?
