As a fan of FCPX I was very disappointed when I found this bug/design flaw. In many workflows involving compound clips, media management becomes a disaster. I’m posting this so it gets attention – hoping this gets fixed ASAP.
*UPDATE* I’ve just received word that Apple is aware of this as a known issue. Also, there is a comprehensive thread here about it on Creative COW. I’ll keep this up here as a resource to others who stumble across the issue in the meantime.
EDIT – here is an additional video demonstrating this little quirk in action:

Oops! Thank you – can you see it now?
o wow. 8 mo later and somehow I stumbled across this post. Actually, I got here via Richard Taylor http://fcpx.tv/bugs.html
Thanks so much, belatedly, for explaining the strange behavior I had been experiencing.
Thanks for drawing my attention to the link on FCP.tv – I’ve thanked Richard for the link. It’s been a while since I’ve looked at this – are you noticing the same behaviour in 10.1.1?
