I've already stumbled across - and fixed - this very bug myself 
yesterday :-)

In case you are using Linux, or have access to Visual Studio 2010, you 
may want to get the latest code from the "master" branch at 

I would have rushed out a new beta already, but haven't found the time 
yet; it'll probably happen no sooner than tomorrow. Windows users might 
want to use the older beta.2 until then.

There is another bug in beta.2 that breaks SSLT; again, both beta.2 and 
the current master branch are fine.
