Paid search conversions showing up as organic search

I have my adwords and analytics linked, and have goal tracking enabled for my thank you page, as well as a few other KPI's. All other KPI's report back to my adwords account as a conversion, however, all actual singups that hit the thank you page aren't attributed to paid search, rather they are showing up under my organic search channel in analytics, and aren't reported as a conversion in my adwords account.

 

Has anyone ever seen this behaviour?

Is auto-tagging on?
Do your other KPI's include a goal of the click events on the CTA button before your thank you page conversion? Then check source/medium of this prior-real-conversion goal.

Another high possibility is that the tracking parameters are not preserved during redirects or other tech issues.
