ArcGIS 10 Desktop : buffers are being cut off

I recently encountered a problem with the Geoprocessing/buffer tool : I want to create 186km individual (disolve=NONE) buffers around a set of points and the resulting buffers located on the edge of my dataset are being cut off.
I thought it could be due to a wrong map extent but it doesn't seem to be the case.
Moreover, when adding new points outside of my dataset, their buffers are also being cut off. See screenshot (pink : full dataset/ blue: new points).[ATTACH=CONFIG]26700[/ATTACH]

Any idea what could cause this ?
It is not the first time I use the buffer tool and I haven't had any problems with it in the past.

Thanks a lot,
