I've also seen it on occasion, and I really wish I knew what the hell
causes it so I could fix it for good, as it drives me nuts.  But I
don't have the foggiest clue as to what actually triggers the problem:
it seems pretty random and isn't frequent enough that I've been able
figure out what's going on.

So if anyone has ideas, I'm all ears...
