Layouts: showstopper problems

Hello,
I have a layout that is used to drive a skeleton and hence an assembly,
top-down.
All was well until recently, when, during a routine check-in of one of the
sub-assemblies, Intralink took it into its head that the layout had changed,
so it had to be checked in as well. To our knowledge, no (intentional)
changes of the layout had been made, but, suffice it to say it was checked
in. Probably a layer status change.
So there we were, with rev/ver A/96, checked in. Everybody updated their
workspaces and all worked just fine.
Then I made a change to a couple of the parameter values and checked in
rev/ver A/97.
Everybody updated their workspaces and Bang! Memory error and crash exit
from Pro/E every time it tries to open the layout.
OK, version 97 is corrupt for some reason, I thought, so I had the admin
delete version 97 and re-did the changes.
Same result.
So I did some digging and playing around. If I have version 96 in my
workspace and I make some changes, save it to my workspace and open it in
Pro/E, I get the crash.
If I have version 95 in my workspace and I make the same changes and open it
in Pro/E, it opens perfectly.

That's good, I thought, so I had the admin force-check-in version 95 as
version 98 (latest). Now, when I have version 98 in my workspace and do the
same changes, I get the same crash!

I am now stumped.

I have gone back to a demonstrably good version, but it is no good after
check-in.
By the way, I have had a colleague do the same process with the same
results, so I am confident it is not a corrupt workspace sort of problem.
The same results occur if, instead of the parameter changes, I change the
layer status, so it is just a noddy change.

Where do I go from here?

I have the draughtsmen working using version 96, and they are doing fine,
but they will not change the layout. They can't, since I have it locked.

I really need to make these changes to the parameters, though. I will need
to make other changes as the product develops, too.

Any suggestions would be gratefully received.
