Experimenting briefly, I find this:

Experiment 1
I made a new doc with automatic text frames, 5 pages.
I then proceeded to insert a page after page 2.

The result was indeed a 6-page document with a text frame hanging out 
after the last page. I also note that the page I inserted had no text 
frame on it.

Experiment 2
I made a single page document, placed a text frame on it, then copied 
the page for 4 copies. Then I inserted a page after page 3.

The result was as expected: a blank page inserted, no evidence of any 
extraneous frames.

So perhaps this has something to do with automatic frames.
