Strange behavior with global fields and single record

Wondering if anyone has come across this or if its just my strange file here..

 

I have a preferences table that has a single record. In it, I have a global field called version. I noticed that every time I exited the file, that field would become blank. I kept filling it in, and it would become blank again. I thought surely it must be a script running from a trigger but no, nothing was affecting this field.

 

So I decided to make it not global - what do you know, it works fine now.

 

Is there some reason a global field would become blank - possibly having something to do with the fact that I only have 1 record maybe?

 

Can anyone verify if this happens to them? Seems strange, but maybe its intended for a reason I am unaware of.
