FileMaker Schema/Graph Changes Not Appearing for all Users

Description of the issue

I've encountered this around 6 times now. When making schema changes, particularly changes to the relationship graph on FM Pro v10.0v1 (both Mac OS X and Windows XP), sometimes the changes are not reflected on other workstations computers accessing the same file hosted by FMS 10 until they close/reopen the file. We've just experienced this today and got very confused for around 15 minutes thinking we were working on different copies of the file etc but we confirmed that we were all working on the same hosted file. One person had made changes to the relationship graph which were not appearing on other workstation computers. Had to close/reopen the file for the changes to be "visible" on all computers. Very scary.
