Text frames with different origins

I've got an intriguing problem with a multipage (Panel) exhibition graphic which has Allow Document pages to Shuffle unchecked. The Origin in Preferences>Units and Increments>is set to Page and the Reference Point top left corner. 

 

On the 3rd page/panel there are 4 text frames (white on blue fill) vertically stacked with space between and are all the same width but 2 differ in height but all are meant to align at X: 0mm. However, whilst the first frame is exactly X: 0mm, the other 3 are X: 230.75, presumably, taking the measurement from the preceding panel. Any views on why this might be?

I think I see it now. Your text frame is actually on the prior page. I'm sure if you soom way in you'll find that to be the case. You can test it by changing the x number to zero if I'm correct it will move way to the left.

Probably based on the spread.

I restarted InDesign in case that might be an issue. However, another thing not mentioned is that of the six panels, the 2 adjacent panels where this is occuring with frame positions are a different width (using Page Tool) to the other 4? Just wondering aloud...

And do you have the same proxy point selected for the text frames in question?

In case it's easier and you're comfortable with it, you can post the InDesign file instead.

Easiest way is via a Dropbox/OneDrive link.

So I've just been messing around with frames 2-4 and by shunting them forward on to p3 and backwards by a mil or two then repeating it several times they all eventually reset to '0mm'. I also tried resetting frame 3 by right-clicking and Transform>Move>-1mm and that seemed to work as well until it didn't!

 

Just ones of those glitches I suppose but, anyway, Bob really appreciate your help.
