Data Driven Pages export to PDF producing odd artifacts on the first page

Apologies if this has already been posted, but I couldn't find anything related.

I noticed that occasionally when I exported multiple pages to a single PDF that I would get the odd white block appearing in the middle of the map, but only on the first page.  It also wouldn't export my second data frame, only the white background.  Again, this only appears on the first page.  After a tonne of trial and error I finally figured out that I seemed to be able to fix this if I zoomed out my layout view to the whole page before exporting.  Very strange.  Unfortunately, I can't figured out how to report bugs to ESRI, so I thought I'd just post it here.  It's tricky to reproduce though, because it doesn't always misbehave when the layout view is zoomed in.

Installing SP1 did not solve the problem, fyi.
