rear brake caliper issue

I have took off the rear caliper this afternoon and the inside pad keeps falling out of place. Once the caliper is remounted it stays in place however.

I don't want this to jam the wheel or drag against the rotor. Is this normal operation? There are no clips holding the pad in place, the anti rattle clip is installed....

If I remember correctly, I thought the outside pad was supposed to come out before the inside pad. With the outside pad in place, I don't think the inside pad should fall out. Is the pad broken? Do you have a Clymer's manual that has a schematic you can look at?

BTW - on mine the outside pad fell off until I put it on the rotor. At that point, the rotor keeps it from falling off.

EDIT: Also, when I say inside pad, I mean the one closest to the caliper body.
