Stopping at a light, then inching up?

Ok, this is something I've just never figured out. Someone comes to a stop light and they stop like a car length behind the car in front of them. Then, little by little, they move forward until they are like 4 feet way from the car in front of them.

I've also seen people do this when they are at the front of the line. They'll stop again like a full car length behind the line then slowly move up until they are at the line. This can be a problem sometimes when they are in a turn lane and don't start moving up soon enough because they aren't close enough to the signal trip and miss the light. ARGH!!

What's with that?! Why not just stop close to the car in front or the line to begin with?

I just don't get it....
