Hide object when calculation not showing

I have this strange effect. When I set up a button to be hidden on certain conditions I often cannot see the calculation the day after:

The calculation evalates as expected, everything works fine but the calculation field is empty, also when I click the 'specify calculation' button, that opens without calculation as well.

 

In the database design report I can find the correct calculation:

so luckily I can get on with the work. When I enter the calculation again in the inspector I get TWO hide condition badges (eye icons)

but when I run DDR again there is no difference, the hide condition is displayed only once.

 

So, is this a bug or is it me? I'm using pro advanced 13.0v1

 

Any opinion on whether this compromises the expected behaviour for my customers is welcome. As a developer I can work around this using the DDR but I'm anxious about my customers seeing the wrong button at the wrong time thus possibly corrupting our data.

 

regards,
