Output feature class of Clip tool doesn't have a Shap.Len field

When I used the Clip Analysis tool and set the output feature class to an SDE Feature Class, then use the Summary Statistics Analysis tool to sum the Shape.Len field, everything works fine.

However, when I try to use an "in_memory" output feature class with the Clip tool, there is no Shape.Len field available for the Summary Statistics tool!

Does anyone know why I am seeing this behavior? I need to use in_memory intermediate data.

Versions: SDE 10, ArcGIS Desktop 10
