How can bids on Mt. Gox be greater than asks sometimes?

Here's a 5-minute stretch from my arb bot log where the spread was inverted:

mtgox 17.1039/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.1039/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.1039/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.1039/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.1039/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0909/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0909/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0909/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0909/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0909/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0909/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0909/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0909/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0908/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0908/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0908/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0908/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0908/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0908/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0908/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0908/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0908/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0908/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0908/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0908/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0908/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24

It eventually corrected itself:

mtgox 17.0821/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0821/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0821/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0821/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0821/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0821/17.09079, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0821/17.09069, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0821/17.09069, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0821/17.09069, tradehill 17.2/17.24
mtgox 17.0748/17.08209, tradehill 17.2/17.24
