Huh. I would have agreed with clipka; I thought this problem was solved 
long ago.  But I just ran into this situation with my animation 
controller.  I was refactoring my networking and the lower layer must be 
on the link line after the higher layer that calls it. It took me awhile 
to think of reordering the link line...
