I've seen this formula pop up in a few threads.

Can someone fill me in on the reasoning behind it? I don't like trusting formulae where I don't know how it came about.

Seriously, I thought this was a good question when you posted it at the other place. If you get a good answer somewhere, I would be curious. I spent an hour flipping through a stat book and couldn't adjust any of the applicable analyses to arrive at this result.
