I am wondering if you are using tool holders. X5 MU1 and earlier versions worked well for me until I started using tool holders in X5 MU1. When using tool holders on a fairly busy job, it would sometimes get confused and scramble my t#'s as you are explaining. I believe that there are more people here with the issue as I have seen other posts on this. Because of this issue and the fact that the tool holder is not defined in the tool def as it should be, I feel that it is just safer to use custom tools in X5 MU1. I have not tried tool holders in X6 yet, so I am not sure if this issue has been corrected.

Yes I am using tool holders in X5. I always use them in fact. I have had similar tool changing problems when ever I change the holder after calculating a toolpath, but I had realized this already and would check things over accordingly.
My big problem is that recently they are just changing at what I perceive to be as a random occurence.

I had this problem for months on X5/X5MU1. Usually D offsets, sometimes H Offsets. I even tried writing a NetHook to scan down the operations looking for this, but it only reported what it saw in the Operations manager - which usually displayed the Offsets correctly. A complete reinstall seemed to help this.
