I really hate it when that happens. :-)

I occasionally have this problem with some of the tabs in a profile with 
a lot of tabs.  However, I don't remember whether or not I got an error 
box.  I wonder if it is possible that there is something that isn't 
really 100% thread safe that only fails under a large load.  Sorry that 
I don't have a definite answer.
