Guides on components broken by sectioning

Guide lines drawn on components seem to be referencing some invisible object near the 0,0,0 point. Sectioning the model in a way that excludes this invisible object removes every guideline from every component everywhere in your model. This can be demonstrated by the attached skp. Turning on any of the sections will affect the guide lines attached to the components, but not the one drawn outside of the components. Try moving section 3 along the X axis.

There’s a very useful and popular extension for construction documentation that converts lines to guide lines. This bug is makes it impossible to automate construction lines while copy/pasting components if you need to section the model to create documentation (I do).
