I don't see the problem either but my client does. She can't work with our 
stacks and we probably shouldn't ship if it's a widespread issue. Her 
symptoms are identical to what you describe.

Please write up a bug report and if I can get more info from her I'll add 
to it. We have a hard deadline in about 3 weeks.
