Waveforms going Red

I am curious if anyone has seen this problem. We keep having trouble with FCPX loosing waveforms. We open our libraries and see yellow warning icons on all the footage. The footage is online, we can play it, see it and hear it. It just has a red bar where the blue waveforms should be.

Our media and cashe is saved externally on our Jellyfish shared storage with all editors/libraries using the same folder. We have been doing this for years on our NFS share without trouble, but just stared using an SMB. Does SMB work differently with cashe?

Currently the best way we have found to get our waveforms back is to reveal one clip in the finder, then drag it back into the event. Doing so seems to "kick" FCPX into remembering where the waveforms are saved. All clip waveforms come back and the yellow warning icon goes away.

This wouldn't be that big of a deal except we loose the waveforms multiple times a day.

Has anyone else had trouble loosing their waveforms? AND more importantly, does anyone know how to fix the underling problem so it stops happening?
