Illustrator CS2/CS6 Pathfinder Cropping Problems

I used the pathfinder crop tool to crop the image shown on top in CS2 and CS6. I made the image using the transform effect and expanded the objects first. I wanted to make a pattern swatch out of it. The result shown in the bottom image took away the highlight from the orange and the blur is gone from the highlight in the strawberry. There's a black rectangle and a black line under the vine of the lower left orange. And the stem from the orange is missing. If I keep looking at it I may notice other things wrong with it.

Obviously, I wanted the image cropped with no changes to my artwork. What went wrong?
