Waas doubling traffic instead of reducing it?

I have 2 WAAS boxes redirected with WCCP (promiscous lists 61/62 on 3800 routers)...We have deployed before like this with no issue but in this case, for some reason, it appears the CIFS traffic that is tunneled over port 4050 between the pair of boxes is not reducing, but yet doubling in size! This is occuring on multiple conversations between the 2 boxes. I thought maybe it was an asymetrical thing but the GRE stuff is enabled on both appliances with "egress-method negotiated-return intercept-method wccp"

Any ideas?

Polices say TCP_OPTIMIZE + DRE +LZ but its doubling the traffic bizzaare

The only reason I can currently think of is that WAAS compression have made it possible for extra traffic to cross the WAN.
