Yes, sounds very much like my problems. Mostly it's pretty random.
Clicking on some random link on random web sites can set it off. All
sort of little things make it happen. The only semi-consistent thing
I've found that's sort of repeatable from day to day is the
rearranging of tabs. That will almost always make it happen after
logging in the first time of the day.
