Not too familiar with the software, but does this persist indiscriminate of an open or closed Traverse? Are you using a DC? If you are only using the face plate plate functions, you may have failed to store the point on the initial set out.

I am using a cs15 leica data collector. i stored the point but it randomly does not show up in the raw file. 

here are the 

Leica Smartworx manuals and guides if you need them...

The referenced Back sight point is not in either the Work file or the Control File.

Also I would use Leica LGO 8.4 to process the survey data. You lose a lot of the capabilities of the instrument when you export to a *.RW5 file.  LGO will process all of the Smart Station Setup routines.
