Slow shutter speed
Also, seems to perhaps be a slow shutter speed with a setting of a flash at the end, this freezes the final position, but due to the subject moving (note his collar on the left) it has left what appears to be a see through section.
A check of the original file will (should confirm this).
Also, the exif data has all the important details missing... hmmmedit on 18-12-2011 by Qumulys because: (no reason given)
Edit. This is what I'm talking about. You'll see the same effect on the lady's shoulder in the photo at this site.
What It Is You can also show movement in an image using a flash technique called Second or Rear Curtain Sync. (The effect is also sometimes referred to as Slow Sync.) In regular flash photography, the flash automatically fires when the curtains of the shutter are opened and closed to freeze the subject at the beginning of the exposure. This lights up your subject, but darkens the background and blacks out detail. Using the Second (Rear) Curtain setting–available on most dSLRs–two flashes are fired: one at the beginning of the exposure after which the first curtain of the shutter closes; and another at the end right before the second curtain closes. Since there's a short period of time between the two flashes, the subject will be frozen in the shot, while the background details blur into movement-suggesting trails.

You are right to say that it is not a camera malfunction.It is the camera working properly within the technical limitations it has and that does occur and quite frequently.It is not the first time i have seen these effects on photo's of friends and family and now here in this thread.Go and ask a profesional photographer about this and you will see for yourself.(preferably one that does not make it a hobby to talk about paranormal orbs in his photo's).
