Re-reading the thread on this bug, I don't see a way to reproduce it 
now.  Without an easy way to reproduce a bug, no one is going to bother 
to investigate it further.  If you think it is critical, you'll need to 
post a test case that people can try, since the case you posted no 
longer exhibits the problem.
