This is _very_ strange. I'm afraid that I'll only be able to help you if you
can package a small test case that I can run myself without needing access to
your data or local installation. I can't really begin to imagine what can be
happening here. Anyone with an idea can speak up now :)
So if you can make a small standalone test case that shows the problem, please
send it this way and I'll run it. Note that I only have Linux to test on, so
if somehow this only manifests itself under XP, I won't be able to help. But
at least posting the script _might_ give an idea (but don't hold your breath,
this is a really strange problem).
