OK. Thank you guys for the replies! I eventually found a smart bug in  
another (executed earlier) part of the code, which caused the

I use for status channel) was not always closed properly, which  
explains why putting some CLALLs here and there helped and also why  
the $b7 had to be messed with... Gosh, I spent whole night kludging  
this around (and eventually finding the kludge combination that  
worked) as I saw no apparent reason for it not to work as expected...

In the moment of serious doubt I even tried both forms ;-)

Could you elaborate a bit?
