Wandering Stereo Imaging

I ran into an interesting issue in C 7.01 with wandering stereo imaging using strip processing. I was playing around with the strip gate, compressor and saturation strip modules on a snare track and noticed that the snare placement wandered back and forth from left to right side and back again after successive transport stop/start commands. I have not tested every combination of processor to determine which might be the culprit but I thought this may be useful to users who may be wondering if stereo imaging is a little strange on a random basis.
