Can any of you see whether I'm simply missing something here?

I create a simple process in the diagram editor, containing a Call Activity. I set the "Called Activity" attribute to +TestCallId+. See the attached image "Call Activity Id Attribute Set.png".

I close the editor, and reopen the editor... and the "Called Activity" value has changed (see Changed Attribute Value.PNG)! 

When I check the underlying bpmn file, the +calledElement+ attribute of the callActivity element is still correctly set as +TestCallId+. Is the Diagram Editor simply loading up the wrong value, so that when I save it overwrites +TestCallId+ with the incorrect +SequenceFlow_4+ value?

I'm planning on designing my flows with lots of call activities to make big diagrams easier to digest. Relationships between the diagrams getting squashed every time I edit and save diagram is becoming very tiresome.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
