I have heard from people who have had similar problems.  One common
denominator is that it appears to happen when you have images whose
dimensions are the same as commonly used in ads.  E.g. a 125x125 image will
be blocked, because it is a standard ad size, but 125x124 will not.

You can find a list of common ad sizes on my Browser News site, at:
