Export to Annotation and then to CAD

Greetings All

I tried creating CAD Annotation from my GDB Annotation that was created using Maplex and noticed that the labels were not coming through to the DWG.
I tried it with reference scales, without reference scales and in my last attempt, I noticed that some single-word annotations came through...

I found a similar post about it and was surprised that there wasn't anymore information on what I think is a serious bug in maplex..

When I use the Standard ESRI label engine to create gdb annotations then the Export to CAD works...

But this defeats the whole purpose of using Maplex!

Any thoughts or suggestions on how to get maplex labels to export properly to CAD?

Thanks in advance
