MS Project file corrupted after updating associated PPM workplan

Hi, I have a problem with integrating MS Project files with PPM workplans when working in "PPM controls all shared work plan information" integration mode.

In some situations (described below) after Updating MS Project file (Update associated workplan option) my MSP file get corrupted - some (most) tasks names are erased, all tasks are set to 1 level in WBS (see attached files - resources names were deleted on purpose).

Problem occurs when:
1. Creating MS Project file and sending it to PPM workplan (Send workplan to PPM option), making change on PPM workplan side (e.g. adding new task, updating workplan from MSP file (Update associated workplan)

2. Creating MS Project file (file1) and sending it to PPM workplan (Send workplan to PPM option), making copy of MSP file (file2), removing association with workplan in MSP file1 (Project details->Remove association), Updating project details from MSP file2 (Update associated workplan)

I know in this mode MS Project file should be updated with WBS and actuals from PPM workplan - but it should refect PPM workplan bu it breaks it instead.
I would appreciate comments on this issue.

Best regards

HP PPM Service Pack 9 solves the issue.
