'Unexected Failure' from COM object

Testing the win32 131 build with 1.6a2, I get this error:

>>> import win32com.client
>>> apssess = win32com.client.Dispatch('Awmonocx.Awmonocxctrl.1')
>>> apssess.ConnectToAPS('username','servername','passwd')
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "<interactive input>", line 1, in ?
  File "<COMObject Awmonocx.Awmonocxctrl.1>", line 2, in ConnectToAPS
com_error: (-2147418113, 'Unexpected failure', None, None)

note: With 1.52 and build 128, I occasionally get a 'catastrophic failure'
error msg
         from the same method, but this happens consistently with 131.
I've tried out several other COM objects, and this one seems to be the only
thats broken.
