I have an MXD that exhibits an odd behavior.  I created and save a map document (no items are selected) and closed the document.  The next time I opened the MXD the legend, scale bar, scale text, and north arrow appear as selected.  I clear the selections, save the document again and close it.  The next time I open it up the same items are selected again.  Thinking something was corrupted, I rebuilt the MXD from scratch and the same thing happens again.  I uninstalled ArcGIS10 and reinstalled (with SP3) and the same issue continues to happen.  Is anyone else experiencing this anomaly?
