Also just want to be sure... do you think the issues I am experiencing are Mac specific? While I don't think that should be the case, I figured I would point out that I am running Mac/Snow Leopard just in the odd case that this is an OS specific problem.
Hey, Brian. I finally got this to reproduce! It wasn't OS specific, but it did require specific toolbar options to be included in the customization otherwise it wouldn't occur. A million thanks for pointing us towards this issue.
