Studio 2011 translation memory conversion problem (from 2007)

Hey all, and Paul in particular (if he's still here),

I wonder if anyone else has seen the following problem and whether it could have been avoided given the right setting when I converted a Trados 2007 TM to a Studio 2011 one. Namely, the problem is that the SGML tagging in source segments is not carrying over to the target segments (spaces added so tags appear in this post):

The hose clamps can be either T-bolt clamps (see < INTXREF XREFID="fc20.f3-mm20" APPEARANCE="HOTTEXT">Fig. < XREF XREFID="fc20.f3-mm20">< /XREF>< /INTXREF>) or Breeze Constant-Torque clamps
(see < INTXREF XREFID="fc20.f4-mm20" APPEARANCE="HOTTEXT">Fig. < XREF XREFID="fc20.f4-mm20">< /XREF>< /INTXREF>).

Target in converted Studio 2011 TM:

Las abrazaderas de manguera pueden ser abrazaderas de perno en T (vea la < XREF XREFID="fc20.f3-mm20">Figura < /XREF>) o abrazaderas Constant-Torque de Breeze (vea la < XREF XREFID="fc20.f4-mm20">Figura < /XREF>).

Notice that the INTXREF tags are gone entirely, and that the word Figura now appears between the XREF tags instead of outside of them.

I wish I knew how to avoid this upon conversion in future, because it now has to be fixed every time I run into a segment like this. Also, if it's a bug (which I suspect it is), maybe SDL can fix this for future customers.
