Don't you just love heisenbugs? Your program isn't working, so you slap the debugger on it, and then it operates flawlessly. The moment you detach the debugger, it stops working again.

(It turned out to be a subtle timing bug. With the debugger attached, the program slowed down slightly, and that made the problem go away).

As the days get colder, my caffeine intake increases. Cold weather => more need for tea.
