Zero thickness geometry may be bad modeling practice. Again, what
exactly are you trying to do?
Cut sweep a groove in a cylinder with a shoulder up next to the shoulder.
Paul is probably right, that the zero thickness is bad modeling practice,
and you are probably right, that it is an accuracy problem. SolidWorks gets
very confused when it has bits of geometry very close to one another. If at
all possible, make your cut profile sketch so that it extends well beyond
the part you are cutting. If your groove comes in tangent to the shoulder,
try bringing it in at an angle and then use fillets to get the tangency.
