That is certainly possible.  Armed with your test files, I can now
look into it.  I'll let everyone know what I find.

Olivier, I want to stress that Matt and I are not being assholes by
insisting on good documentation of the problem you are running into.
I genuinely want to fix the problems in the code, but it is usually
impossible for me to do so only on the basis of a description of the
problem.  By submitting a good bug report, which includes examples of
how to trigger the bug, you are doing a great service to me and to
everyone who uses my code.  Without good and useful feedback from my
many users over the years, my codes would suck a lot more than
actually do.  So ... thank you for participating constructively in
this process.
