Illustrator 3D extrude on text misses faces

I am attempting to create 3D text in Adobe Illustrator CS5 in OSX using the 3D Extrude and Bevel effect.

The problem is that if I only rotate the text on one axis, in this case the X axis and then give it perspective, the resulting object is missing a few of the faces of the 3d object. This results in some incorrect white space.

Is there any way to correct or work around this bug to achieve the desired effect?


Try adjusting the perspective by 1.

There are some instances were the perspective will cause faces to drop out. Usually a very minor adjustment in rotation or perspective will help those faces reappear.
