I know, that isn't the answer you've expected, but 3.0.x is out of 
maintainance since more than 5 years now. I think most people can't say 
much to problems in such old versions.

Please consider upgrading to a more recent version (4.0.15 or better 
4.1.5). If the problem is still there, you will surely have more success 
to find a solution here on the list. And if it's a bug, it will be 
surely fixed (in maintained versions).
