If the wood was milled from poor stock, eg a tree with a good lean on it, it will move in nasty ways every time the humidity changes. Sometimes they can screw things up in the kiln as well and embed stress in the lumber that will reek havoc later on. Also, boards with complex grain patterns tend to be more unstable.

You might want to look for a different supplier . . .
