      I am trying to recreate the issue that you are having but I am not getting the same results.
      What type of modifying are you doing to the mirrored wipeout?
      What I did to test was create a rectangle with a hatch pattern. Then created a wipeout and then placed a line in the middle of the wipeout area so that the wipeout is obscuring the hatch… I then mirrored everthing and the draworder was correct after the mirror and then i did some simple modifications to the wiepout like moving and grip editing to adjust the size of the wipeout.

      Also what version of AutoCAD are you using?
