Features Crossing the International Date Line

Following an upgrade from Arc 9 to 10, I noticed a change that I didn't see documented and wanted to confirm.

Previously in version 9, Features such as Polyline, could not cross the international date line.  It required special handling code to detect when the dateline was crossed and to cut up the feature so as not to draw a line around the entire earth, when only 2 degrees were warranted.  In 10, handling code failed to work.  After removing it all together the code that would have had problems in 9 due to the dateline worked perfectly without any issues.

Is crossing the international date line something that was added in or is there another issue I'm seeing here?  Is the change documented in detail anywhere?
