Sounds like a computation error or if any of the letters in your font 
reaches downstairs somewhat longer.

I remember vaguely that I had a similiar thing with a poster long time 
ago, the font's length downstairs being the reason.

Try to adjust the lower border of the text frame so it doesn't let the 
next line in but just is enough to take up the font.

Another idea: do you use a justification grid like for two-column 
design? I remember there was a case when I had something like this when 
the font height didn't fit the vertical justification grid. Maybe just 
switching it off is the solution.
