Version, configuration, language settings? Set for Chinese or English? 
Unicode or Latin-1? Raw Unicode text or 〹 numeric entities? Which 
browser are you using? Can you reproduce this effect regularly? If so, 
can you provide an exact set of steps to do so?

I could not reproduce this in 1.3.0beta5 set for English/Unicode, with 
raw Unicode Chinese text, using Firefox 0.8.
