2013.4 Vivado - Running read_checkpoint on synthesized DCP opens the implemented design instead of checkpoint design


I have a synthesized checkpoint (for example synth.dcp).  

When I open it in the Vivado IDE (File-> Open checkpoint or run "read_checkpoint synth.dcp" in the Tcl Console), I find that Vivado opens the implemented design, instead of the synthesis design or checkpoint design. 

Is this an expected behavior?


This issue with the 2013.4 Vivado IDE has been fixed in Vivado 2014.1.

This occurs only when the design contains LOC constraints in the XDC file.

If the LOC constraints are removed from the XDC file then "read_checkpoint synth.dcp" will open the synthesized design.
