Outstanding news! It worked.  I finally had some extra time to change
the other two methods to match my modifications to CreateData and it
worked like a charm. Pretty cool.  I think this is the best way to go,
so not too many people get broken.

Thanks, JoeSox

Technically this IS a bug in the module you're using - it shouldn't expect the sizes to be fixed.  We can make these 4 byte values but I suspect we'll have differences on x64.  We can make them platform dependent but not all platforms have the same definitions for the size of "long".  In particular I believe Windows defines this as being 4 bytes and most other platforms choose 8 bytes.  Based upon that investigating I'll update the sizes so we can be more compatible.  But I'd love to hear if updating all 3 fixes your problem.
