Build 1750 does not displaying layer package files created using arcpy

Attached are two layer packages of identical geometery, bound_1.lpk and bound_2.lpk. Both can be opened in Explorer 1700, but only bound_1.lpk will open in Explorer 1750.

Both layer packages were produced from the same layer file. The difference is that
    bound_1.lpk was created through the ArcMAP 10.0 interface using the 'create layer package' context menu item
    bound_2.lpk was created with arcpy.PackageLayer_management() using the default settings for all optional parameters.

The same problem occurs if I create layer packages from other layer files. I have replicated the problem on two separate PCs.

Has anyone else found the same problem? Any ideas on what is going wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My application uses layer packages to avoid Explorer placing file locks on layer files, and the layer packages are created using the arcpy library.

Thank you,
