Where does Portfolio store field descriptions?

Does anybody know where in the database that Portfolio (Roadmaps) stores the field description text?

We are trying to alter the descriptions for a number of fields, including the Portfolio fields Parent Link, Target Start & Target End.  However, the updated description text does not display correctly in the same way other fields do, and it is still pulling in some default text from somewhere. 


I have updated the text in the Custom Field description AND in the Field Configuration, but it's still getting text from somewhere else.  As you can see in the screenshot, my text is appearing as the raw HTML, and the text above is coming from somewhere I can't seem to find!

My understanding is that it's taking it from a properties file in the installation.

Thanks Nic, any idea where?  I've had a good grep and can't find it!
