AFAICT that is a brilliant idea -  put a watch on the var(s) until I can trace 
just exactly where the offending line is.  
 I have yet to bring my tools up to speed to do that here in PHP.  I won't have 
time before this thing is out the door..   but thanks for reminding me I need 
to check out something like xdebug sooner than later.
