Boris Red + Avid rotoscoping problem

I ran into an interesting problem this morning. I am trying to rotoscope some imperfections in a couple green screen interview clips I have keyed out with BCC effects, but RED does not seem to want to work for me. I am putting a 2 input Boris red effect on the keyed interview so I can separate the fill from the background. Then I'm am simply putting a spline track on the inverted mask of video 1. Everytime I try to manipulated the spline or even move through the timeline, the video 1 layer flips upside-down over and over again as I slide through the effect. Also, the spline track is not subtracting any of the fill no matter what I do.
I've already shut down and restarted my Avid to no avail. I went ahead and took the project over to another Avid; used the same steps as before and everything worked fine. I opened up a different project on the problem Avid, and everything worked fine. So, what I'm looking at is a project isolated issue.
The project was offlined on a different computer at 15:1 on an Xpress Pro Mojo, and I am onlining DNxHD 145 on a Media Composer Adrenaline. To the best of my knowledge, both computers use the same version of RED 3 and BCC 3 & 4.
I'm guessing there is a setting that got changed somewhere along the line. Any suggestions?
