No problem; thanks for taking the time to test it! You will probably notice that
the code has a mix of full texture statements plus 'naked' finish blocks. This
combination was what I had to come up with to get the results I needed (and to
take into account some slight differences between v3.7 vs 3.8 beta 1). The mix
may not be *the* ideal arrangement, as I had to experiment with a lot of
permutations. When I finally found a combination that worked, I settled on
that...without running even *more* possible(?) tests. ;-)

It could be that a few minor changes to my code's texture/finish mix would
eliminate your own bug *and* still make the result correct and consistent across
versions; I don't know.
