I too ran into this a few months ago. I didn't find a fix.  Try editing, not create layer.

Subject: gis-l: Creating a layer from a selection

I'm using ArcMap 9.3.1 w/ the new dataminer.
When I create a layer from a selection it projects the selection but then it disappears after zooming; and it doesn't reappear when I zoom to the full extent or refresh.
I got it to work once today but then I tried to create another selection from the new layer but the attribute table was empty- so no projection. Anyone run into this problem?
