Thanks for the debug lines, this seems to be a more efficient  
debugging than my debug code was.

However, I think we have a problem at two ends.
IMO, yes, we need to figure out the reason. But additionally I'm still  
convinced that a good function should filter out garbage input  to  
prevent crashes or loops as this one.

I'll need some days to dive into it, I'll call back once I know the  
reason forthe null resources.
