Describe.catalogPath strange results

I have a script tool that takes a workspace as a parameter, then loops through the tables in that workspace and prints their catalog path.

import arcpy
from arcpy import env

workspace = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(0)

env.workspace = workspace

for fc in sorted(arcpy.ListTables()):
 arcpy.AddMessage(arcpy.Describe(fc).catalogPath)


I have a file geodatabase with a schema imported from an SDE via XML.  When I run my script tool against this file gdb I get strange results.  The catalog path prints correctly for most of the tables, but a few will show having different catalog paths.  Is this a python thing, an environment thing, or an XML schema document thing?
