Problem With Linear Referencing

I am having some issues with linear referencing. When I display the route events from my dbf table, the geometry seems to be missing as the points do not show up in ArcMap, but when I open the attribute table, all the data is there. Same thing when I export it to a permanent shapefile. What's even more strange is that when I select one of the points or a group of points in the attribute table, the selection is visible in ArcMap and they appear to be where they are supposed to be, but again, when I export to a permanent shapefile, the points disappear.

Is there a bug or glitch known for linear referencing, or am I doing something wrong? I've used this procedure with similar data before without any issues, so maybe I missed something. I'm using ArcGIS 10.0.

I'm also trying to script the whole procedure in Python since I will be doing this numerous times in the future, and if I script it, I'm having the same problem.
