Why is my static cyclic-symmetry analysis with axisymmetric loading in ANSYS 11.0 solving for all possible 49 harmonic indices?

This behavior has been corrected by fixes for defect 63441 in ANSYS 12.0. The solution still evaluates all 49 harmonic indices to determine if they are significant, but the computation now takes a fraction of the time (around 1/6). Also, if you specify CYCOPT,HINDEX,0,,,,STATIC in ANSYS 12.0, it will only solve for the specified harmonic index and not even evaluate the others.
