I'm not sure about this since I saw it once or twice and then I undated
my SVN of the 3.5 BRANCH and it went away.  It is possible that 3.5.2 
was released with this serious regression.

Someone else with 3.5.2 please try this and see if you have the same 

If this is a bug, it appears that it has already been fixed.
