Topic: Unrecoginized tabbing in Reader 7

Our company creates fillable forms for about 200 users online, and we have noticed that as our users are now starting to update to Acrobat Reader 7.0, some peculiar things are happening. One major issue we are finding, is that when the user tabs to the last form field on a form, instead of tabbing back to the top of the form like it had on every other version of Reader, it seems to be tabbing to 3 or 4 invisible fields. I have checked the field list one by one, and there are no hidden fields that it seems to be tabbing to, so I have no idea what it is getting hung up on. After it tabs to the 3 or 4 invisible fields, it tabs to the 1st field on the last page of the multi-page form, whereas on the earlier editions of Reader, it would go up to the 1st field on the 1st page. This is happening rather consistently, and I have no idea what it is doing.

The forms fields were all created in Acrobat 5.0.5 and 6.0 Pro. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
