I haven't observed the effect you describe while resizing my window from about 800x600 size to a full window at 1024x768 (using IE6.0/Win2000), but if you're looking to simplify your navigation, you might want to consider creating an extra layer in your site structure, turning each of the three main categories into sub-sites as it were.
The main page, and every sub-page, has these three links back to each of the section starting pages, and only the pages in a certain section have links to other pages within the section.

I'd advice cutting down on the dizzying array of links everywhere on each an every page in every conceivable style anyway: for me, it doesn't add much usability and it clouds the site's structure. There's nothing against having more than one way to reach a certain page outside the main navigation, but this, too, has to have some degree of consistency in placement and style.

Oh, I forgot: think up some clear, meaningful names for your sections. The current criptic ones give no information whatsoever about what sort of information can be found there.

Don't be clever: be clear.

There is an excellent tutorial for a css/javascript navbar at www.spoono.com. I've needed a nav similar to yours before and used it and it works like a charm. Cross-browser, fully customizable and it doesn't glitch like some of the others I've tried.

Go to spoono.com and check out their css or js tutorials and you'll see v4 navigation menu - it's one of my biggest tools.
