File is checked out, Inventor wants to do "Save As". WHY?!

I'm working in Inventor 2013 Pro, Tube & Pipe.  Huge assembly.  I have it ALL checked out.  I am trying to save the work I have done so far, and Inventor is prompting me to do "Save As" on a pipe route that I haven't even EDITED yet!  My only visible option at this point is to close down without saving and lose a half day's work.

 

Any ideas?

Quit without saving.  No choice.  Let's see how much time and money I just wasted.

Why not do a Save As? At least you could fix later. Maybe rename.

If you do that while working with Tube & Pipe, you are inviting an aneurism.  Been there... done that.
