i remember that SQL 2000, via enterprise manager, it is possible to use the GUI to change the text of the procedure, but without executing that new definition , so you could have a definition that is different than the compiled body of the proc.
so you are seeing effectively the same issue in 2008? i thought that was addressed by SSMS always scripting it out? or are you looking at a 2000 server that that effect may have occurred?
