Solidworks PDM 2018 not getting latest after approval

For some reason Solidworks PDM is not pulling the latest version of files, and it appears only to happen after a file has been approved.

 

Part2 created, approved, revision shows "A" in explorer. All good here.

 

 

Open Part2, not so good!

 

Shows Local version 2/2, that should be fine. That's the latest version, but Local revision shows A, but custom property shows Pre-A?  That's no good...

 

If I choose "Get Latest" and check the box, OR check out the file... Everything is now Revision A.

 

 

So, (1.) how can I fix this and (2.) how can Local version be 2/2 but not be the latest version. which is apparently also 2/2?
