Default Aim-7 Still Tracking after loosing lock, and no chance of radar seeing enemy

Me and a buddy were testing out the Aim-7's the other day and we noticed that the AIM-7's (when fired by the F-18 ) would continue to track even after I lost lock. This loss of the lock was often after just a simple barrel roll. But whatever the case this should not be happening... below is a link to a tacview file of the whole testing engagement....

the two big examples I noticed were:

20:50-21:05 (if this were rlf the proximity fuzes SHOULD have killed my buddy)
28:40-29:00 (where the missile was defeated kinematically but if he had flown straight he may have been hit)

Saw the same yesterday Radar appeared to go into mini Aquisition mode, also after a fairly mild barrel roll. Missile still hit the target.
