I seem to have a knack for finding these strange and mostly rare problems! All the problems I post about seem to be obsecure and get limited help . Take a look through posts started by me for some hair pulling problems
Glad I could help.
I created an account JUST to thank you for this post: http://www.edugeek.net/forums/window...variables.html
I spent way too much time on this...don't know how you figured it out, but it solved my problem.
