It is hard to know from this what to expect (as I don't know what 
structure your card has).

Could you file a report in the quality center, with a simple stack which 
shows what you are seeing?

It will make it much easier to determine if it is, indeed, a bug, or 
just a strange (but correct) behavior.

Warmest Regards,
