    It sounds like a layer issue. Try moving the layers into different orders in the timeline. This may solve your problem.

    Default Maybe this...

    I suppose this is a long shot, based on the context of the text, but here goes...

    What if you were to create the text in a 3rd party application as an image, then import it into the timeline as a video track...

    I've found that to work when I just want white text on black background or a freezeframe...can't think how to directly solve your problem though...

    Is your text's leading set to auto? Highlight the text and then check the leading setting on the character palette. A pic of the AE7 palette is attached. The leading setting is circled. If it is set to auto and you're still experiencing a problem then play around with the setting until you get the result you need.

    This is where I would look also. importing the text as an image will stop you being able to use the wide range of text animations available I would imagine. As skribe says, it's all a questions of paragraph layout I reckon.
