Wow, I had this problem again and found my own self asking the same question 2 years ago....
I checked what Vincent said and that was not the issue - none of those little boxes were checked.

I have now figured it out. It happens when I am tracing over images that I then have to cut a hole out of and then remove hole with the pathfinder. I need the opacity to be lowered so I can see the inside that will eventually be knocked out. Illustrator groups the shapes together even though one shape is no longer there.

All you need to do is select the image and ungroup (Command/Shift/G) and then the opacity will show up properly as not 100%.

I hope this helps somebody!
I have Illustrator 5 so maybe they've fixed it in Illustrator 6 - I hope so!
