Why are work items from previous sprint backlog shown on plan for the current iteration?

Sometimes the work items from previous iterations appear on the plan for a current iteration. There is no check mark in Include all items and the previous items have all been marked done/closed.

The structure in the iterations are shown below. Sprint 2 is the current and in the backlog (plan) for sprint 2 there are items from sprint 1 - why?

This screen shoot shows that the story mapping of QC fields and its related tasks are all from Sprint 1 and as you can see there is no check mark in "include all items"

I guess you are experiencing :
Task board view of plan loads the work items from past Iterations. (273908)
which is fixed in 404

Actually I experience this also for work breakdown view?

Is it the same bug?

Apparently the screen shots did not make it to the question (not enough reputation points I guess ...)

The layout of the timeline is like this
 - Startup (done)
 - Sprint 1 (done)
 - Sprint 2 (current)
 - Sprint 3 (next)
 - ...

The other screen shoot is harder to show, but basically it shows a plan with story and related tasks that all have a small arrow in the top left corner indicating that these work items are from another iteration/sprint. In this case the previous and since they are done there is absolutely no reason to see them in this plan.

PS. this is in RTC 4.0.3
