breaking closed polylines

In the acad documentation, it states that the break command will remove the piece of polyline between the points in an anticlock
direction. This used to work in previous versions, but now, with R2000 and R2004 it seems to be random which piece gets removed. Has anyone else noticed this and found a solution?
