This bug appears to be a duplicate of Bug 122854 (see Bug 122854 comment 8), which may itself be a dupe of Bug 72873. Mike Fletcher, do you agree?
If it's a duplicate of Bug 122854 then the process described in comment 8 for reproducing it seems somewhat convoluted. That said, it sounds like the same underlying problem, so yes, I'd agree that it's a duplicate.
