With the new order of the styles in le Layer Styles panel there is a blending bug with Stroke: when the opacity is not 100% on the stroke, it affects the opacity of the underlying styles on the stroke region.
Eg: put a Stroke style at 20%, a shadow below and you will see the shadow parts below the stroke to be removed...

Maybe if you posted a screenshot showing the issue you would get more response.

Well, true :)

Hope this helps. I compared the result of a Stroke effect with the one of a glow effect. The stroke is supposed to blend with the effects below it, isn't it?
I cannot check at the moment but I am pretty sure it did on CS5.
That's kind of a big bug for my work as I use this effect a lot for icons.

Thank you.

In the drop shadow dialog uncheck Layer Knocks Out Drop Shadow
on your bottom three examples.

Is that the result you were talking about?
