Two Descriptions Showing for Custom Field

We are using a custom labels field in JIRA 4.4 and recently started adding descriptions to them. Now we see two descriptions, the deafult and our new custom one. We have checked both the custom field and the scheme that the custom fields are in. Our new text is in both. Any idea why we are still seing the default text?

Built in fields have their own default description that can't be replaced unless you do some javascript hack. I came across this also with the Priority field.

Didn't know that. Thank you for the information, very helpful.
