Parent/child categories losing displayed hierarchy in post edit

Basic install of wordpress 3.1.2 with parent & child categories set up. When a new post is created, parent & child categories are ordered perfectly in the right hand side "categories" box.http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/821/21962812.jpg/

When the post is saved (either publish or as a draft) and the post is returned to, to edit: any child category that wasn't selected is now displayed outside of its parent. http://img638.imageshack.us/i/28112281.jpg/

Tried with a fresh install of WordPress 3.1.2 with no plugins installed and the same thing still happens.

My mistake. Did some more reading and realized this was a "feature" ...though I must say it's a very odd one. Fixed with the "Category Checklist Tree" plugin.
