It may be a normal misbehaviour, but there must be some combination of
markup that "causes" it. 

This came up when one of my clients asked if I could find a solution.
problem occurs about 20% of the time in some of their current
generated pages. I'm hoping it will be okay in a few weeks once they're 
able to switch over to the new markup I recently provided, but since I 
don't know what causes the problem, I can't be sure it won't pop up
I can't *make* it happen on the new pages, but it seems it would be
to know the cause and if there's a solution.
