Custom field description change is not shown in edit or create screen

Hi,

we have recently added a new project with new custom fields (created via Jelly runner). A few people mentioned that one field had a misleading description. So we changed the description accordingly.

However the change is not shown in edit or create Screen. And yes we have reindexed and even restarted JIRA, but no effect. The old description is still shown.

Has anyone an explanation?

Thanks,

Udo
