Could you make a minimal input document and a minimal configuration file
or command line options and cite a specific version of Tidy so we can 
reproduce this problem? I am asking because this would be a major bug in
Tidy and this is the first time I hear about it, so it is more likely
that there is something wrong about how you use Tidy.
