Did you see this behavior on multiple systems? Or was it just you having
the issue and one other person not having the issue? I can't reproduce
this with my version (Version 1.3.0-SVN-28821 on WinXP).

If you can reproduce this on more than one PC, please report it as a
bug, otherise I think it might be something local on your PC.
