Are you using master?  If so, try applying PR
and see if it helps. The serialization is being redone a bit, and it is
more conservative about inspecting arguments.  2246 fixes an issue where it
was a little *too* conservative.

We can handle simple functions, but most importantly not ones with
closures.  What error do you get?
