Default Re-entry not authorized?

To all the experts on visas out there..
I recently received my work visa document and it's got a stamp on it saying
"This does not authorize re-entry"
What does this mean exactly? I was not aware that a work permit holder
cannot re-enter Canada if they leave the country before their visa expired.
Does this mean that I cannot take a short trip to the US or visit my home
country during holidays?

Work or study permits are not visas, so if you are a national of a country
that is not on visa waiver list then you need to obtain visa abroad to
re-enter Canada.

Is this a new regulation? I had a study permit before getting this work
permit and it was not stamped "does not authorize re-entry", I re-entered
Canada numerous times before without being aware of this.
I hold an Australian passport, which is on the visa waiver list, am I OK
then for re-entering Canada without applying for another visa?

The notation was added because many students and temp workers were leaving
Caada and when they attempted to return thay were denied boarding by
airlines because they lacked a corresponding visa in thier passport. The
notation doe snot aply if you are otherwise visa exempt or you are entering
Canada form the USA , St Pierre and Miguelain (sp) or Greenland.
