May I suggest a reason for the oddity.
<-- the following is only a theory and it's origin is not mine --->
MSN has a contract with Ink to provide a certain number of clicks in a given period of time. What you are seeing is MSN "catching up".
A I said, only a theory and you can called me a nut if you want to :).
