Ha! I solved my own problem. The problem lay with the stupid 
vector::iterator stuff. It was trying to dereference an empty iterator, 
so I fixed it and am uploading the patch to the tracker. One statement I 
would like to make, though: those of you who are using std::vector in 
your code, please debug it first before submitting it as final. A lot of 
bugs in this template class go unnoticed until whiney compilers (like 
MSVC 8.0) throw a fit over the smallest minute detail. Thank you.
