I think this is a bug found in the Nextel BlackBerryOS 188.8.131.52 "beta".
(I feel it's kinda beta quality at 184.108.40.206)
Right now, the GPRS BlackBerries are at 220.127.116.11 and later (including 18.104.22.168), and the CDMA 7250 is at 22.214.171.124. Very stable BlackBerryOS versions, which fixes the problems you mention -- my sync is working perfectly now.
Unfortunately, it seems that Nextel is kind of slow releasing the stable 4.0 and still has the early somewhat-buggy 126.96.36.199 up...
See if you can put a bit of pressure on Nextel and RIM.... Nextel has the oldest 4.0 public release, and I feel that it is time that they update it.
You can workaround many of these issues, by making sure the mappings are configured appropriately, since one or two of the mappings are sometimes messed up. Sometimes the mapping for "Home Address" -> "Work Address" gets messed up when installing BlackBerry Desktop 4.0 on top of certain versions of BlackBerry Desktop 3.7 ... So please doublecheck that the "Home Address" mapping. That might fix about 1/3rd or 1/2 of your problems.
I ran into this problem, but solved that (even while I was still using the early 188.8.131.52X betas)
