Well if you can reproduce it, others will try to fix it!
Or at least try to find a workaround, if it can't be fixed. Just sitting
around saying this or that sometimes happens doesn't help many people out.

Saying your C++ code is ok just because it works with VB/VBScript doesn't
necessarily make it ok code.

Do you recall what kind of scenario caused the problems or did any old
PythonCOM usage cause the problem?
