Can you try your original code with the latest 3.0 beta and see if it  
still causes problems? There was a bug relating to recursive calls and  
arrays that was fixed in a recent build. The bug may have been related  
to using "do" as well but I don't remember the details and I don't  
have my notes with me. it might be worth a try.
