Not repeating labels on horseshoe-shaped polygon beyond part that goes "off-screen"

Here is an annoying example of where Maplex fails.  What's the problem and solution?

First example is an extreme example but I am just trying to make a point:  Label repeating is set to every 2000 metres.  Note how the labels loop around the bottom of the peninsula and over to the other side.

When I move the view further north and the peninsula divides the waterbody essentially in two on-screen, this is the time when I would *naturally* want to indicate to the viewer that this is the same waterbody on both sides.  But instead, here we see that one whole half is *no longer labelled*!!  Why don't I continue to have labels repeated on both sides of the polygon at every 2000 metres!  This doesn't make sense logically, nor from a cartographic standpoint!  Can it be fixed?  I haven't changed ANY Maplex settings.
