what version is your SSMS tool actually running?
I've seen similar issues with the scripting of objects, where a prior version of SSMS cannot work correctly against a higher version of SQL server(specifically 2005 SSMS agasint 2008 or above for scripting various objects)
is it possible you have 2008 tools, but are connecting to 2008R2?
