This sounds like it should be reproducible with a small self contained 
program, which is good news.  I'll try and find time to look at this 
soon, but in the meantime it would be really helpful if you could 
produce a self-contained, compilable, minimal example showing the 
failure.  The example code you sent earlier is a good start, but it's 
just a fragment, so I can't compile it and see the problem you're 
getting...  (I could work on it and build it into an application, but it 
would be much better if you do that - if the problem is due to something 
to do with your environment, and I can't reproduce the problem, I'd end 
up spending a lot of time trying to work out why my code works; much 
better if I start at something which compiles but shows the error.)

Thanks for the report, hope to hear from you soon.
