Last letter of new segments goes missing

Here is another of the many Trados peculiarities that seems to be popping up a lot again recently: Trados adds segments as new segments that actually were in the TM already, but it cuts off the last letter of the last word.
It seems to affect mainly single-word segments, perhaps because they are repeated moreoften.

This happens only when I allow multiple translations for identical source segments.

Annoyingly, the 'new' segment, the one with the last letter cut off, is usually offered as the first option, so I can't depend on Trados to automatically translate anything anymore.

Has anyone encountered this issue before and possibly found a solution?

I use Trados 2007 with Office 2003 and Win XP, but I remember seeing this in earlier versions of Trados as well.

Much obliged.

Importing causes it Aug 16, 2008

I found out why this happens. If I import a TM into another existing TM, Trados cuts off the last letter of every segment that was already there. It's a software bug.
