For some reason I can't reproduce this.  I tried the above order of
calls under 1.5.24, 1.5.25 as well as under current CVS HEAD.  In all
three cases it worked fine.  This isn't exactly a 1.5.25 problem since
under some circumstances it also fails under 1.5.24 and HEAD but it
appears to be a very difficult problem.
