In v8i I'm able to select these objects or snap to points along the yellow line THROUGH the glass box.
In CE it seems I'm not able to do so. What am I doing wrong?
PS. I have Disable Drag Operations checked in both v8i and CE, but I don't think this is related to the problem.
In CE I have set my "Locate Interiors" option to "Always" and it does find points hidden on the other side of shaded geometry, but you have to tentative several times to "drill" through the object. Something has has changed from v8i as it seem to order the "drilling" by "depth", and not "point closest too", the tentative point.
However also look at UN-TICKING the: AccuSnap settings box > Elements > Find Elements By: > Interior of Filled Elements
in my opinion, what mentioned Robert Jones should solve the problem: In AccuSnap Settings dialog, to switch off Find Elements By: Interior of Filled Elements.

Thanks for your responses Robert & Jan. Switching off AccuSnap settings box > Elements > Find Elements By: > Interior of Filled Elements has made no difference.
You're right - something has changed. With Locate Interiors set to Always, I can indeed tentative "drill" through objects to select the geometry I want - but it's so much more cumbersome than the v8i approach.
That partially solves my first problem, but it still doesn't allow me to rotate the view around a selected point. I have to switch off the layer showing the transparent box (assuming it's on it's own layer) before I can snap to exposed geometry to rotate a view about a point. This is seriously regressive to the way I work.

It's weird, because with this setting switched off, AccuSnap identifies boxes inside transparent cube without any problem.

Works both in Visible and Always modes and also both in Transparent and Illustration renderings.
Thanks again for your help, Jan.
Accusnap actually does find those boxes for me (as shown in your version), but without Accusnap; to draw a line from the corner of one of them I have to tentative snap multiple times before getting to the point I want (Locate Interior Always).I generally don't use Accusnap - I know the point I want to snap to and don't need an automated point finder.
For Rotate View (with Accusnap enabled or not enabled), it won't snap to anything inside the big transparent box - just its edges.
You've added your specs - could it be related to software/ hardware spec? (although I've tested on a lower spec laptop, with the same problems)
