Hmmm, just guessing without really testing the problem (sorry, busy Monday morning), but could it be that you're using Rowspan's for the TD? As in:

<td valign="top" width="45%" rowspan="2">

If my memory serves me correctly, JAWS has a bug which doesn't allow it to properly handle spanned rows, and columns - refer to the following link:
http://www.webaim.org/howto/tables/tables3 - section about spanned rows, etc. There's also mention of it on the JAWS user lists... somewhere in the forums.

You might want to also add title attributes to your DIV's - to further identify their content and purpose. Hope this gets you moving in the right direction
