I'm no expert but this sounds like it could be the same bug that i suffered
from when i tried to upgrade from 2.0.X to 2.2.X. Try looking at the debug
log and see if you get a message along the same lines of the extract from my
log below.

I have not yet found the cause of this but I'm hoping it might get fixed in
the next release (2.2.4?). Sorry i cant help but i think we will have to
wait for the developers to fix it.
