I cannot reproduce this with Org-mode version 7.7
(release_7.7.311.g0c099), so I'd suspect your 6.33 (which is quite old,
but unfortunately still ships with older versions of emacs). If you are
at all serious about using org-mode, you probably need to install the
7.7 release (or if you are willing to live on the edge, clone the git
repository and enjoy all the up-to-date features - and some breakages,
but ime, breakages get fixed quickly).
