Keepers of the flames

In the opening track of S&M, which is the only purely orchestral track, there's a mic too close to what sounds like a double bass in the right channel. The rest of the album gets a whole lot louder than the opening track, because Metallica themselves are involved for the rest - yet the right-channel distortion never shows up again. Did someone move the offending mic? Or was the sound layout optimised for the band to be present, so it was recording the first track in their absence that caused the problem?
