IEditor.StartOperation throwing exception GDB_DataChanges

We are getting the following exception in our code that we are converting from ArcGIS 9.1 to ArcGIS 10 when the code starts an operation eg pEditor.StartOperation.
{"The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot find the input table or query 'GDB_DataChanges'.  Make sure it exists and that its name is spelled correctly."} System.Exception {System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException}

The code is written in .Net C# and runs in ArcGIS 10 Desktop SP3 on W2008 using ArcSDE 10 against MS SQL Server 2008 R2.

I dont know what the Jet Database engine has to do with ArcSDE editing (other than the scratchworkspace mdb that ArcGIS generates automatically while editing
in ArcGIS 10 held in the user local settings folder). The problem likely points to ArcGIS10 desktop & 9.3 database as indicated by this thread but we have a clean install on a new server.

Anyone seen this or have any ideas?
