It took me a while to discover this behavior that Alex has pointed 
out; it was very confusing. Sometimes, when I get the "can't find the 
handler" error message, I locate the handler and change it in some 
trivial way, maybe just add a space between a couple of words and 
then recompile. This will often reveal the script error.

I am pleased to say that I have found 2.0 to be quite solid on my machine.
