How do I prevent the Reporting Services Parameter Bar disappearing?

I've made a report for SSRS 2008. the report has 4 parameters that are hierarchical in nature (You pic something from the 1st param, it loads the 2nd param list based on that 1st param. Then you pick something from the 2nd param, it loads the 3rd list... etc).

When I make more than 1 parameter change before clicking "View Report", the parameter bar disappears entirely - not the Hide mode, where you can click on the arrows to open it, but FULLY gone. The screenshots tell the tale.

How can I stop this?

Ok, folks. Figured it out.

There was a report, basically just a few text boxes that were an Action link to other reports. Using that report to get to the other reports somehow screwed up the parameter bar when you would arrive at your destination report.

I removed the 'navigation page' from the reports, renamed the destination reports with friendlier display names for the customer, and all's well. Now they go straight to the report, and there are no issues.
