Quicken is changing my custom Check Number to weird characters

I have added a custom check number called DIRDEP. It is to represent direct deposits.
I have noticed that, after closing and reopening Quicken, they have all changed to DIRDúÿÿÿ.
I can do a find/replace all of them and put them back to DIRDEP. However, they revert to gibberish after closing and reopening Quicken. None of my other custom check numbers have the issue. (WEB, eCheck, ATM, INTEREST)

    Please be sure to set up Quicken Backup Preferences to create a backup every time you close Quicken.
    One can never have enough backups … trust me! BTDTGTS!
