Cura 4.01 anomaly

I have just downloaded Cura 4.01 and while watching the first few layers of a print realized a curious anomaly while it was crosshatching.

On one side of what is basically a symmetrical print the crosshatching was as normal with alternating 45 degree layers on the other side the layers were almost in line with the Y axis and did not alternate. I noticed this repeated some layers higher in the same print.

Going back and reviewing the print in Cura 'layers' mode confirmed this. See attached screen grab.

I assume this should not be happening. Has anyone else noticed this?

    This is typical. In order for the pattern to repeat on each layer despite every layer possibly moving a bit each time, I believe Cura's infill pattern is anchored to the 0,0 point on the printer. So if you move a part a little bit, the pattern inside will be different.

    Anyway, you can always increase your infill - you have it pretty low - looks like 5 or 10%. Try 20% if you want more infill. I don't recommend going over 24% though. If you want strength, increasing shell is usually better than increasing infill.

    Apart from the unusual angle (and that it was doing on one side and not the other) which I have never seen before, it was the fact that each layer was being laid in the same direction without any crosshatching, which I thought might lead to delamination, but this does not seem to have happened.

    I don't think it can be trying to bridge as this was building up the bottom surface.
