The lamps modules do that as well.  I am not sure if it is a bug or a 
feature.  But it does seem standard.

Other than just hammering it with on commands in the hopes of resetting it, 
which I'm guessing you've done, it may be hopeless.  These things retain 
their programmed house code and unit number until reprogrammed.  So it could 
be stuck.  But it seems like all X10 stuff defaults to A1 when it is having 
issues, so you may just have a malfunctioning socket rocket.
