Sharepoint 2010 Datasheet View causing bogus conflicts?

We're using a custom list in Sharepoint 2010 to manage some customer data that we often need to bulk edit.  To do so we switch to a datasheet view and make changes.  For some reason, when doing that we keep getting conflicts.  The strange thing is, there is no one else working at the time and when we run conflict resolution its just showing the old value and new value as the conflicting changes.  It happens all the time and its driving us bonkers.  Any idea why this is happening?

We have had the same problem with look up fields. Seemes like there is some bugs with look up and managed metadata. In our case, we could click the conflicts and force it to update. But you could use access instead if there is many conflicts: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint-foundation-help/synchronize-a-sharepoint-2010-list-with-access-2010-HA101854203.aspx

I'm closing this out.  In our case it turned out to be self-created.  We had a workflow that was modifying one of the fields when the item was saved and that workflow would occasionally cause a conflict with the user's edit.  The fix was to put a delay in the workflow so that it would give the system enough time to save the original edit before applying the new change.
