Thanks. I've been running my test program a lot the past couple of days. I
think I squelched a couple bugs in my own code that may have been causing
the problem. I thought it was because some non-string args were sneaking
into the call, but that appears not to be the case either (the error message
in that case is different than what I was seeing). Tim's inability to
provoke errors was also suggestive that it was pilot error, not a problem
with the plane.
I'll keep my eye on things and let you know if anything else appears.
P.S. Happy Father's Day all you dads out there.
