exons and introns again...

I know this is not a methods and reagents question, but I always get
excellent responses on this server (: (thanks everyone!)
Here is my question: All of the textbooks say that the 3'utr is
usually contained on ONE exon. I haven't found any papers on medline in
recent years that indicate the contrary/exceptions to that rule (perhaps I
need to look further, but I thought I'd ask first). I have a gene that
has a 1kb intron AFTER the stop codon, right smack in the middle of the
3'utr before the poly-A. Can anyone tell me other genes that have a
similar occurance? Is there any significance in such an event?
