One thing we repeatedly tell people who post code with problems (here or
on the tracker) is to reduce it to the minimun needed to demonstrate the

Chris did the reduction for you, and ...

the problem can hardly be missed.
Another approach is to start with the minimum that exhibits the control
flow you want and then add content.
