When an image is added, the background stretch goes away.

I originally thought this was a CSS Issue. It still may be however I wouldn't know why. If anyone does want to take a shot that this I would be most appreciative for any help.

I have an issue with Opera that I cannot figure out. This does not happen in any other browser that I have tested including
IE7, FF, Flock, AOL Desktop, Safari for Windows. Thus far, only opera. I have not tested most MAC, Linux or Unix browsers.

The Issue:
I have a background color stretched in CSS that goes down 100% of the DIV and Table I am working in.
I have two columns also designed in CSS that work with no problems.
In the second column, no matter what size, no matter what settings, no matter what I attempt to do, IF I include 1 image in that column, Opera decides it no longer wants the background to go full stretch within the div and table. Now it is going to put the background up at the top in a line. HUH?

Strange Part:
If you first go to the webpage without anything in your cache the error described happens. However now go to the address bar and then hit your enter key as if you were going to the page again. Now it works as it is supposed to? WHAT?! Where did that come from?

Can someone please help me? I am at a total loss on this one.

Thanks for any insight,
