Is there a bug in sweeping closed paths?

I seems o be having a problem making an o-ring groove for a static flat surface. I make a path in one sketch. I make the sweep geometry in another sketch. I use sweep and a bizarre result happens.

Here is the path

Here is the geometry to sweep

Here is the unexpected result

    @ _Ðave_ , You are correct..it works if we place section geometry at the end of line.
    It works fine even if we place section at middle and if we don't have any fillet(or arc)in sweep path.
    But why it is not working if we have arc or fillet.
