Maybe the groove has been physically damaged. I accidentally did that once removing a wheel bearing. (!) I was like, "Why won't this freakin' bearing come out?" as I cranked down on the bearing tool assuming it was just really tight. Then a loud snap as the groove broke free and the bearing popped out. I got to buy a knuckle from a salvage yard a couple days later.
