Duplicate Notes in Reports

I have just noticed that if I generate a Register report from FTM, I see a lot of duplicate notes.
An example would be "Birth notes: xyzBirth Notes xyz"

I have found a work around but its very tedious as you have to edit every entry.

In the Person page I select the note that is duplicated. I delete the note. I then switch from Notes to Sources and back again. The duplicate note then appears (actually some times its older information).
I delete and paste back the correct entry. This fixes the problem.

If there is no duplicate, then switching from Source to Notes gives me the familiar Name Notes etc in grey. I then know that there was no duplicate here.

The question is really - is there any better work around?

Anybody else have the same problem?

Is this a bug or a feature?

Could this be a result of a merger between two databases?

Mac version 2010 v Mtn Lion

(And yes it crashes a lot too)
