okay, found it, but now I'm worried...

the div that contains the background image had no specified width and 
all the content, bar the paragraph of text was absolutely positioned so 
out of the document flow, so IE7 RC1 appears not to have the default div 
behaviour of full width divs unless otherwise specified.

can anyone confirm?

I'll set up a test case and see...

could be a tricky one.
