6509 VSS IOS Upgrade gone bad - kinda

Tonight we were performing an IOS upgrade on our 6509 VSS to 122-33.SXI6.  Both 6509's have dual Supervisor cards installed.  Initially we had problems with switch 2 slot 5 supervisor returning to rommon however switch 2 slot 6 supervisor loaded correctly.  After manually setting the boot var in rommon, switch 2 slot 5 supervisor reloaded correctly.

After all supervisor's were online we noticed when looking at " show switch virtual redundancy" that sw 1 & 2 slot 6 supervisors were running the correct IOS version but sw 1 & 2 slot 5 were running different IOS versions, however when looking at the show version we are running on the upgraded IOS???  See output below...

Does anyone have any ideas why when the active supervisor has loaded the incorrect IOS the VSS is running on the upgraded IOS?  I have verified the IOS was copied correctly to each supervisor bootdisk, I see no issues. 

                  My Switch Id = 1
                Peer Switch Id = 2
        Last switchover reason = none

Re: 6509 VSS IOS Upgrade gone bad - kinda

Ok.  That's weird.

Unless someone's going to correct me, I'm suspecting this is an IOS bug.
