My point was simply that the information you provided so far didn't have
any of the needed details to track down this problem.  I wasn't trying to
debate you.  But since you have now stated that your goal is to just report 
the problem, I will refrain from trying to engage you further on this issue
of yours.  If anyone else has a similar problem, at least your report will
be in the archives and perhaps they can fill in the needed details to 
actually track down the cause.  Until then, like you said, we have your 
report.  If you're interested, you can keep an eye on this list to see if
something surfaces that might be relevant to this problem you're seeing.
