[R] significant results with KW but not in post-hoc test

Dear all,
I did a Kruskall-Wallis test for a comparison of a variable of interest
between 10 sites and I get a significant result (p=0.0019).  however, when I
perform a post-hoc test using kruskalmc from the pgirmess package, I get no
difference between any of the paired comparisons.  I cannot find anything in
the internet, not in my stats books about how to explain this contradictory
result.  I have also seen that somebody else asked this question in this
forum but she got no answers.  Can anybody help me understand what is going

Thanks, Silvia.
