:: Further information ::
After deleting the buggy pages and re-loading the preset in order to attempt a rebuild to see if it was an anomoly, I notice that NONE of the dynamic menu items have the previous information stored within them. Not the static option or the dynamic information.
It should be noted that there are multiple dropdown menus within this form.
** even after setting up one dynamic menu and then clicking OK, when you go back in (lightning bolt) you are left with no informatino from the previous settings.. it is all gone.
