FTM - 2012 Inconsistent relationship calculator?

Posted: 1375736070000
Classification: Query
I have a large family tree that goes back to early New England immigrants. As you might imagine with a relatively small population, there is a lot of intermarriage of various branches of the tree. In doing research, I was connecting two branches that are married and noticed that one person was only showing up as "wife of cousin" since I am also a cousin to the wife, I thought that was odd so I used the Tools->relationship calculator and with me as the primary person it shows only (1) relationship between us -- that where she is the wife of my cousin (it's a distant cousin, but for simplicity ignoring the 2nd cousin 7 times removed). When I switch the two where she is primary, it correctly shows that we are related 4 different ways, but when I switch back it goes to only one relationship again.

I'm correctly showing as having multiple relationships with her parents, but not with her. Any suggestions?
