Mate Errors / No mate errors?

Having a seemingly strange problem:

  • Assemblies with a large number of mates seem to have the mates "blow up" at random times
  • Assemblies saved with no mate errors suddenly show mate errors upon opening/
  • Open an assembly that shows a ton of mate errors, fix one mate and mate errors go away.  CTRL-Q and they are back
  • Repair all of the broken mates and save.  Re-Open assembly, mates show as unsolvable.  CTRL-Q fixes.
  • Assemblies with flexible mates show errors on open.  CTRL-Q fixes them
