Would someone at Autodesk care to answer this? I have seen the same issue in version 2010 and 2011. It's annoying!
Quick and dirty fix....
Get the block name of the offending footprint, find the dwg for the block and open. Select the attribute and go to the properties for it. Find the Visibility option (Called Invisible in 2008) and set it to hide the attribute.
Now do a block update and your problem should be solved.
