There are a couple of bug reports of this in bugzilla.

However, as yet I have been unable to reproduce these
(i spent some time on this before the release to
determine if it was a generic problem in our code).

It would help if you would grab a level 10 debug log
of the failure and send it to me off list.  Thanks.

cheers, jerry
