Default Tempo doubling on playback

I use a laptop running Vista to playback music for our choir practices. On some occasions, it is happily playing a piece when suddenly the tempo doubles. There is no change of tempo indicated in the score and if you look at the graph over notes this shows a steady tempo.
Sometimes closing the file and reopening it will fix the problem: sometimes restarting Notation: sometimes restarting the laptop: other times I just have to re-assign the correct tempo to the measures that we are rehearsing.
All of this of course takes a considerable amount of time and is very inconvenient and embarrassing for the rehearsal leader.
I have not yet been able to establish a pattern and before I do a lot of research I am wondering if anyone else has reported a similar problem: I cannot see anything on the forums but it is a tricky topic to search.
Can you give me any advice? For example, am I wasting time closing and reopening the file as the problem is more likely to be in the software than in the file?
