Yes...! I am working on a critical edition of a Byzantine chronicle 
and I am using babel and polutonikogreek option. I can confirm that 
it does happen sometimes. I have not been able to find a "real" 
solution for that, i.e. to get rid of this problem in a key stroke... 
What I do, is I look up at the entries in the table of contents, and 
insert \selctlanguage{english} at the end of the chapter/section that 
preceeds the one that appears in Greek in the TOC. Sorry, I cannot 
provide a solution for that, but at least you know you are not the 
only one who has seen this behaviour....
