This is something that I have notices previously. It seems to be related to having a BAR over component pin names (generated using the "\" symbol). This seems to cause the BAR to be moved to strange places on the schematic.
Our solution was to not use this naming facility, but to have ALL component pin names use "nXXXX" to indicate an active low signal. Kevin Knight Amino Communications Ltd.
