Spline offsets seem to work, then don't

I've used some splines to trace the outline of a logo.  I'd like to offset those splines to create a buffer around the outline.

When previewing the offset, the splines are shown to extend down and to the right until they intersect, which is what I want.  So far, so good.  However, when I confirm the offset:

...Onshape suddenly changes its mind.  What gives?

Interestingly, I can still extrude the outline as faces, and then use the Move Face or Thicken features on that.  But I'd like to stay within the sketch, if I can.

    I can confirm this behavior. You can't even do anything with the geometry (like using Extend) untill deleting all relations, which makes it no longer an offset curve. Looks like a bug to me.
