We had a new hire in a 3 person shop. About 2 weeks in she came into my office all bent out of shape, ranting that I had screwed up a program she had been doing maintenance on. I had edited the program to add a small change and saved, which resequenced the line numbers. Well I couldn't do that because now the line numbers didn't match up to the printout she had and she had no idea what lines she changed and the change history (multiple program listings) didn't match up. I pointed her to the date column in the listing and explained it to her and I got to keep my head.

I'd say to resequence your line numbers and see what happens.
