Does what you can see when viewing the exported file depend upon the scale you are viewing it in?
No it doesn't. Manifold and Global don't do things that way anyway. Another thing: so far, I've only noticed this peculiarity in the Cities data. Other lyr exports to shape (Parks, etc) seem to be fine. I hope it isn't a problem with that particular data set -- it looks like a dandy compilation of city limits!

I have tested a work around but it involved importing sdc data into a geodatabase. The data that was missing in the initial extraction from sdc to shapefiles was successfully located. I then tested an extraction from the geodatabase to shapefile format & the same features that were missing were successfully extracted.
"There is much beauty that we fail to see through our own eyes teeming with life forms that give us that perception of our reality. Leaves on the trees blowing gently in the wind, or scarily, the waves pounding through high surf, or lightly on a warm summer’s day; that opportunity to sit or swim in the water on a white beach. That comfort to shout, “The universal conscious do you hear me? I am alive, guide me dear logos towards the path of rightnesses.” Earned what has been kept, no longer to be absorbed into a life filled with cold damn winds and that stubborn fog clouding my vision with nothing but darkness."

James' method works!
(under the category better late than never)
I definitely have seen this when trying to export city limits to shapefile, using the layer on the ArcGIS 9.3 data disks. I noticed the 9.2 disks didnt have this problem, so I always figured it was some error with the data when they went from 9.2 to 9.3
