Sonication with PMSF/EGTA produces a precipitate.....why?

Anybody else come across this? When I sonicate bacteria in .1 mM PMSF/10
mM EDTA, add 1% SDS and incubate for 30 min. at RT I get a DNA-like
precipitate. I don't think its because of the SDS, boiling the mixture
doesn't put the precipitate back into solution. The concentrations for
PMSF and EDTA are well below other reported concentrations so I don't
really have any idea what could be causing it.
