It is comforting (sort of, although I wish it wasn't happening at all)
to hear that I am not the only one who has run into this. In my case,
this is all using LC6.7.x (currently 6.7.11), so no widgets are
involved, so I am not sure Widgets are the root cause.

The damnedest thing is that it is not consistent!
