Convert Entities selection initially don't appear in sketch

Upon creating a new part in an assembly I typically use the ConvertEntity tool to make my first sketch lines for that new part. However, any number of converted entities do not appear. Only after I have sketched a single line segment or rectangledo the converted entities appear allowing me to use them increating the intended part.

Converted entities do appear automatically if I sketch a"stray" line segment before using convert entities.

Interestingly enough, when I zoom out from the assembly (far away -the assembly is really small) the converted entities do appear, butdisappear again when zooming back in (before sketching the strayline mentioned above).  Neither does spinning the model showthe converted entities.

I have also tried rebooting the machine thinking it might be a RAMissue, but the same thing happens every time.  I do have thelatest driver for my video card.

I think it is a software problem, but maybe someone has a remedy... 

Any ideas???
