Ahhhh - this appears to be related to a particular frailty of the
import hook I use, and the fact that what happens the first time
you 'import CLR' is slightly different when you run using the
managed wrapper vs. the extension module.

I'll take a look at it - in the meantime you can just add an
'import CLR' line above the other imports in the demo scripts
to get around the problem.
