This should work - and it should work transparently.  Is it possible the
problem is related to a change in version rather than a change in platform?
For example, did you move a 1.0 stack to 1.1 where some behavior might be
slightly different?  If you're having problems with a specific stack and
can't figure it out, please send it to me off-list.
