The attached file is a 2D V7 DGN file. I've deleted most of its content to focus on a bad element.
The file contains two objects: a blue complex shape (the rogue element) and the red dropped components of a copy of that shape. As you can see, if you open that file with MicroStation/J everything appears OK.
However, customer references that 2D file into a 3D master file. The blue complex shape behaves oddly when you attach the file as a reference in 3D:
The dropped components of the complex shape appear to behave normally. There's something about the complex shape that MicroStation objects to in 3D.
Incidentally, MicroStation V8i handles that object gracefully in the same situation (2D referenced to 3D). However, we have to work with MicroStation/J because the models have some input from PDS, which has never made it to V8.
can you try the attached file
It's the same. See screenshot attached.

can you try this one
I appreciate your help, but rather than trying an arbitrary no. of files that may or may not work, I'd be grateful if you could tell me (a) what you think is wrong with that object and (b) what process you are going through in an attempt to fix it.
I ran the fie through EDG and it repaired 1 element.
I removed the 2 shared cell definitions.
I found an extra shape in the top right of the design plane (only saw it when referenced in to V8) and I removed it through EDG.
Also removed the tag definition.
I was not able to get the result that was in your screen shot.
Not sure if that helps you or not.
