It appears that when a QGIS composer legend's layer is set to hidden, it fails to take into account the previous item offset when rendering legend box. It's a bit hard to explain in words, I believe the attached screenshot does a better at describing the issue.
I've also created a dummy project file with a composer that shows the symptoms to facilitate debugging.
This appears to be the last remaining issue for QGIS composer legends item placement. Reluctant to set it as blocker, so will leave it as high, but IMO should be fixed prior to 2.0.
