In progeCAD 2013 block objects vanish after hatching in edit reference.

I created a rectangle with text then made it a block object. Later I decided to hatch it. In "Edit local reference" I deleted the text then hatched the rectangle, then saved the change in "refclose". The hatch showed but the other 167 blocks like it vanished. I tried "regen" but had to close the drawing without saving to not loose the blocks.
Maybe when I used the "dview" command in my layout view to rotate the view 90° it caused a conflict.
Any other Ideas?

Well, the problem seems to have fixed itself. Today I opened that drawing and repeated the steps as before. The blocks hatched and didn't vanish.
The last time after closing and reopening, the problem still existed. Now it's okay.

I have been noticing random instability with progeCAD 2013 on both my work PC and my home office laptop. ProgeCAD will lock up, gets sluggish, or crashes. Often I restart progeCAD to refresh it.

Both computers have Window 7 OS, 8+Gb RAM, plenty of drive space.
