I changed a sites URL via site settings but not reference link changed to to the new URL.  SO I thought I would change the references via site settings | navigation.  But when I edit a folder or link - none of my changes stick - the URL is still the old URL. Even if I browse and selecting a site or anything the old URL is still there.

Sharepoint 2007.

I found the problem and a work-a-round

This is a Sharepoint bug when you chnage site URL.  Some references change properly, some don't and some get corrupted.  Delete all the corrupted items it the tree them add them back.
