This sounds a lot like my old nemesis: The Peekaboo bug
<http://www.positioniseverything.net/explorer/peekaboo.html>

The solution is fairly simple: Apply the "Holly Hack" to the affected element:

/* Hides from IE5-mac \*/
* html .buggybox {height: 1%;}
/* End hide from IE5-mac */

To learn more about the subject, I would strongly recommend that you
read "How to attack an Internet Explorer bug":
