Weird Glitch in FTM2012?

I noticed something weird in the Places tab in Family Tree Maker the other day. It seems that Brooklyn has malfunctioned. I thought at first it was because I added the street addresses to the description field for many of the census and residence facts in my file. However, it didn’t do the same thing for Caldwell, New Jersey. To test, I moved the street address to the beginning of the places field, but that didn’t solve the problem either.

I tried to merge all the different Brooklyn entries using the Merge Two Places option. That did nothing. The places won’t merge.

Is this a leftover side effect from my corrupted file? The problem does not appear on my Original file, so I can’t imagine what I did to make it happen. I’ll let you know if I figure out how to fix it!

P.S. I’m still working on the next part of my Redesigning my Chaos series. I’m having a hard time pinning down a banner I like. It’s coming along though and I’m really anxious to get new design around here.
