The rules of cleanup as far as I know are as follows:
1. Wall, roof, floor cleanup first compare core layers to core layers and non core layers to non core layers
2. Non core layers will not clean up with core layers and visa versa
3. Then the layers of core / non core compare 'Function Priority' to establish penetration with Function [1] taking priority. 
4. Then after penetration is established 'Materials' are compared and the seam lines and 'cut patterns' cleanup up or not.
This principal also comes into play with walls, floor and roofs as they interact with each other.
Then there are the actual end points of the walls that can be pulled apart and reconnected as well as the 'Wall Joins' tool to mitre etc.

If the manipulating the rules above does not solve your problem, then try this:


  1. Select the intersecting wall and right click on the blue grip at the intersection.
  2. If you can't right click the blue grip, drag teh wall away from the intersecting wall.
  3. After right clicking the blue grip, select "Disallow Join".  This will detach the wall from cavity, allowing the cavity to pass through uninterupted.
  4. Drag the grip to the interior/exterior edge of the cavity wall as needed.
  5. Use the join tool to merge the materials (note that your walls will still be "Disjoined" in regards to wall cleanup, but the materials will merge so long as they are the same.
Happy reviteering!

You fell victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous is never get involved in a land war in asia, but only slightly less well known is this! Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!
