Yeah, this is a big issue and I haven't seen it being mentioned on the
org manual. Emacs has org integrated, which is good for casual users,
and for org of course, but creates some headaches if you want to stay
on the bleeding edge of development. I also did what you have done, in
my case, on OSX, cd'ed into Emacs.app and removed org manually, then
it started loading my version of org. The details should be in a
previous post of mine in this list.

Marcelo.
