Bug in ArcGIS 10 ~ draw errors when table is joined

Can someone from ESRI or the community at large confirm if the following is a bug in ArcGIS 10?

I have a point featureclass in a personal geodatabase. I have a field called action that stores the codes N,D,M or G. I've set up a label class where D and G display an empty string and M and N display the text in a field called SURTAGID (see attached screen shot). In this non-joined state everything is working as expected.

I have a non geodatabase Access database with a table in it which I join to my point featureclass based upon the TagID fields (the highlighted field in my image). As soon as I make the join I get all the draw errors and everything fails to display.

I've also noted that if I click on the Expression button I see all my fields prefixed by the appropriate table name([fcPoint.SURTAGID]) but in the label field drop-down one only sees the field name...
