Unhappy PLEASE HELP. Pro tools sends stop following automation after re-opening sessions

Hi, I rarely post here, but I'm having a very bizarre problem with pro tools.

On a regular basis, after closing and re-opening a session, random sends will stop following automation. A send will either send when it shouldn't, or not send when it should, ignoring both the mute and fader for that send. Inactivating and re-activating the send will cause it to work correctly.

As you can imagine, this is a nightmare in bigger mix sessions where I have send automation for multiple sends across multiple tracks. I've gotten into the incredibly tedious pattern of inactivating and reactivating every single send in a session upon opening it. And sometimes that doesn't even work and I have to repeat the process on sends for which it doesn't stick the first time.

I'm on macOS 10.13.5, Pro Tools 2018.4. Just formatted my drive and reinstalled everything hoping that would help, but the issue is still present.

Any one else having this issue, or have any ideas?

Thanks much
