Running Windows 7 and Office 2007.  Randomly, new emails and replies will open up behind the main Oultook screen.  If I close Outlook and open it up, sometimes it begins working and sometimes it doesn't.  Is this some sort of bug?

Not aware of any bug.  Is your Outlook 2007 definitely patched up to date? (SP2)

Is this happening with the "Outlook /safe" too?

Normally when the 3rd party addons has got some activity to complete...Outlook *may* react like this

Hopefully the patch has resolved it.

If the issue does recurr, then try running Outlook in safe-mode as suggested by e_aravind and that will help you identify if it is Outlook itself or an add-in.
