That sounds to me like you are using a caching plugin that doesn't
properly clear the cached page when the status is changed back to
draft. I could see how that condition could easily be missed. Usually
pages saved as draft won't ever have been visible, so why attempt to
clear the page cache of something that won't exist.
After the page is demoted to draft, try doing this:
http://exaple.com/draft-page?foo and I bet you will get a 404... ?foo
can be any random characters
Or if you are using wp-cache2, supercache, w3totalcache/whatever try
clearing all caches after the you have demoted the post..
