It turned out to be my old friend duplicate hashes.
I'm being very careful to not call the stupid-hashes "stupid_hashes" after all someone must have thought that they were a good idea.
I suspect that the cut list editor contributes to the very high incidence (one a year) of clashes each of which has taken days to resolve (boy I'm a slow learner)
Seeing the fault NOT go away in various views or browse modes started the bell ringing, so thanks for the suggestion
