Can't edit SQL Jobs on server with International Language Support

Our dba team has a standard database that we install with utilities on all servers we support.  It's on over a thousand sql servers currently without issue.   I attempted yesterday to install it on 2 servers that had international language support enabled and found I could not edit the SQL Server Agent jobs that we commonly use to do backups, maintenance and common functions.    One server had 9.00.1406 for the base service pack for the database engine (I cannot remediate yet--new customer) and 9.00.1399 for the Client tools.   Will this cause inability to edit the sql agent jobs or is there something else at work here.   This server also has international language APIs enabled and is in South Africa and the other was in the UK.  I need to find a solution to this.

The big difference being the addition of TRY..CATCH blocks. Let's take a look:
