Pattern Problem in Pro2001?

I'm going crazy so I hope someone can help me out on this.

I have a round plate that I want to machine the same pocket geometry at 60
degree intervals around the perimeter. The cut is from the top surface
through and breaks out of the plate edge. In sketcher I created a centerline
through the axis of the plate and at 60 degrees to the horizontal plane. I
sketched my cutout, constrained it and everything is OK for this first cut.
I then select pattern, general, select the 60 degrees dimension as my first
direction, done and then 6 copies including the original. I usually get a
pattern aborted or I end up with three cuts shown but six in my tree. The
second three cuts are on top of the first three. The only way I can get this
to work is to make the initial angle 30 degrees and make a pattern of three
and then mirror these to get my six. This won't work well as I'll have
additional geometry referenced to the first cut that I want to pattern using
reference pattern.

I'm on build 2003240 of Pro2001. Am I doing something wrong or is this a
bug?
