This is due to bad geometry.
The 'triangular' face where the two loops diverge is causing problems
(yes, the face is a quad, but if you look carefully, the loop is entering one side of the quad and exiting out the opposite side, as it should. The loop changes direction because the two adjacent edges at the top are essentially co-linear)
