I use it and have not (yet) noticed this, so I hope it's something 
you're doing and not a bug.

You could try generating a boolean version of your image, examine 
that to make sure the objects are still adjacent on that and use 
label on it. Here's my code:

   import numarray as num
   # smoothed data is a median-filtered version of my image
   # dataCut is a value above which pixels are considered data
   shapeArry = num.ones((3,3))
   labels, numElts = num.nd_image.label(smoothedData>dataCut, shapeArry)

If this doesn't do it (and nobody has anything better to offer), 
please put the image up somewhere that we can access it and show us 
your code.
