It had slipped my mind before, but now that I think about it, I had a 
similar problem last time i went out on the trail (waaaay to long ago).  I 
have pretty scarawny hips, and have to keep my hipbelt on really tight to 
keep it from sliding, so much so that I got bruises and chafing on my 
hips (also, I don't think the fairly new hipbelt was broken in well).

This could have been the cause of my problems too.
