That sounds like a bug. What processors do you have in those busses? Can 
you create a minimal test session from scratch that shows this misbehaviour?

Did you delete plugins before this problem popped up? Maybe there is a 
subtle bug somewhere that leave zombies automation around after a plugin 
got deleted? I've never seen that, though...
