Symbol Editor reverting changes?

I am seeing odd behavior in Symbol Editor where I have changed the symbol. It is in the schematic with the changes, the file has changed. However, when I try to do an edit symbol the symbol appears in the symbol editor as it was. It does this whether I right click on the symbol in the schematic, from the PADS Databook, or just opening the file with FIle->Open.

 

I think it might have something to do with our revision control system, it makes the files Read-Only locally until edit. From what someone else saw they seem to think it might be related to that. It is just very bizarre that opening the file where the symbol has obviously changed reverts to some old data. It isn't clear where that file/data would exist such that it could be purged. I do find if I edit, change in the editor and save it seems to hold.
