I concur. I keep thinking it's my connection timing out, but it really isn't...

edit: also something else I've noticed is sometimes reaching the end of the buffer will actually cause the particular resolution you're at to become unselectable. I view all videos in 360p (best my download can handle), so if there's a hiccup in the data flow and I reach the end of the buffer, sometimes the resolution will switch down because 360p is greyed out for some reason. I typically will have to reuse the link to the video to get it back, refreshing doesn't fix it.
Valid point, I have suspected as much. Although I am using Chrome, constantly signed into Chrome and Google and YouTube, and sometimes the videos from blog sites show up in my YouTube History... So it may be the odd one here and there diabling it... I am also one to watch in 360p/480p during traffic heavier times and 720p later at "night".
