I'm also wondering if it has anything to do with how many links the final page has. I'm about ready to try an experiment on that. It seems to me that the pages linked to from the PR6 page that have only a PR 4 may have too many outbound links on them. Does you PR0 page have more outgoing links than the others?
I do need to ask if the PR0 page is relatively new. It used to be that PR was updated instantly when I added a new article but now it takes a while.

(or maybe the Toolbar is correct and Google give different PR to pages dependent on when you created them)
I'm beginning to suspect that the more links you have on a page the less PR they pass on.
In the link building section here on Webmaster World, everyone seems to be in agreement that this is the case for outbound links, but I'm not sure it's the case with internal links at all.
Google's only caveat is to make sure a page has less then 100 links.

Mine are pretty much all internal links. But I still wonder if Google differentiates between internal and external. It seems logical that they would but in observing it isn't that obvious that it does.

I find it just takes a while to get PR on a new page now but once I do it seems to be at par with similar pages.
I wonder if it is something else. I notice that my homepage seems to have passed on the PR7 to one page. It is a page with a good deal of text and few links. I wonder if that is the reason. Meanwhile the homepage seems to pass on a PR6 to all other pages it links to except to the first page of my directory which only gets a 4. That page is mostly links, several to other internal directory pages.
So on my VERY limited study links, even internal links, seems to be a factor
If anyone is interested to see a Google PageRank calculator I can sticky the URL, or search Google for "PageRank calculator".
