Known issue with Forum software.

Fix by....
>>User Control Panel
>>Edit Profile

Topics Per Page: 500
Posts Per Page: 5000

Or something similar.

No more paging.... just scrolling after that. Intellimouse will become your BFF after that.

Numbers provided were my settings. I am on a PC almost 100% of the time. You can tweak for performance as needed.

I suspect what is causing it is a rounding error when calculating number of posts to display per page. If you are using pages, the sympton is negated after a couple of posts pushes the rounding past where it is getting "clipped" (until the next page that is). Set high numbers removes the page calculation and rounding error entirely.
