Pads show up as hatch, WHY???

On bottom layer of my board I have 2 components (large ~0.5" pads for battery contacts).

I also have text "LAYER 2" with width of 0.020"

When I got to generate gerbers the battery pads show up as hatched area, why....? They should be completely solid, they are nothing but a rectangular pads, not fills / floods...

If I change the "LAYER 2" text width to 0.001 or get rid of the text all together, the pads show up correctly.

 

Can somebody explain what is going on? I've looked through all of the CAM settings and can't find anything that will make sense. It's like PADS picks 0.020" thick pen for everything on that layer if "LAYER 2" text is at 0.020
