Materials don't stick

Attached file is a safety relief valve body that was modeled with TCv12.3. Everything is still fine there.

The problem I have is that the materials applied don’t stick in v16. I’ve spent the last few hours troubleshooting (nothing obvious wrong) and reinstating materials, the JPEG is a screen grab to show how it should look.

I’d like to establish whether the problem is:
1. A faulty (corrupt) component requiring a full redraw.
2. My TC install is damaged requiring reinstallation.
3. A known problem.
4. If the error occurs during Saving or Opening the file.

I've just saved the file in TC16 and it should render as shown in the JPEG. Anyone care to open and report what you see?

Under the 3D properties the body doesn't show as being a solid or a surface object. You can explode the object once to make it a solid but you'll lose the part tree history. Once the object is a solid the materials stick as they should. I'm not sure why it isn't a solid to begin with though.

I see the materials listed in the Part Tree, but they're not listed the in the Materials palette. Using the Facet Edit tool, it reports that there isn't any material assigned to the various facets that I checked. It renders a nice gray color. :-(
Very Odd.
