    We've had a rash of reports similar to this recently, but people have
    been reporting such behaviour on and off for years.

    Does this match what you're seeing?

    Since none of us has ever seen this, we're unlikely to be able to do
    much about it without some detective work from the people who _are_
    seeing it, to try to narrow down what it's correlated with.
