CS6 Pattern Brush- no fill/no stroke bounding box not working- creating an overlap not crop

I am trying to create a seamless pattern brush in CS6 .When I use the no fill/no stroke bounding box placed behind the object to define the repeat, instead of cropping the object for the brush, it overlaps it.  Here is an example:




When I do this in CS5- the bounding box works fine and crops out the space outside.  Was there an update in CS6?

    Pattern Swatches crop; Pattern Brushes do not.

    Brushes would be severely debilitated if the spacing box cropped the artwork. That is neither the intent nor desirable. If you want the artwork cropped, crop it before you store it as a Brush tile.
