Yes, that is the major problem I have found with booleans. If you extrude, or use a deformer on them, they disappear or creat a phontom face running from the object to the origin.

(I already answered R-Tillery on IRC, but I'll repeat it here.)

Delete history on your target object before applying the boolean. Most of the time, deleting history will solve a lot of problems.
