Problems with Sex fact (Gender) in FTM2012

This is interesting. In FTM2012 I just noticed that there are 58 persons in my tree with the sex (gender) appearing as "Unknown". When I view them in the "Family" tab, the sex appears as "Unknown". When I view them in the "Person" tab, the sex sometimes appears correctly as either Male or Female.

What's even more interesting is that some people in my FTM2012 tree have more than one "Sex" fact. One person has six "Sex" facts, all indicating Male on the "Person" tab, but his sex appears as "Unknown" on the "Family" tab. This has got to be an error in the software since there is no way for the end user to add additional Sex facts.

When I try to change the sex on the "Family" tab from Unknown to Male or Female, it automatically goes back to Unknown. When I try to change the sex on the "Person" tab, it takes there but it still shows up as "Unknown" on the "Family" tab.
