Can I ask exactly which version of the class you were using?  I ask because
CVS version 1.9 (1.N.5 was 1.6) got a major re-write of the removechild()
function.  I'd love to hear you say that you did your testing on a version
previous to this :o)  We've been aware for several months now that
removeChild was a very weak function...

Revision : 1.9
Date : 2001/9/30 2:56:32
Author : 'nigelswinson'
State : 'Exp'
Lines : +144 -80
Description :
Major re-write of the removeChild() function. It had developed some fairly
major bugs, ie when called it would delete the entire $nodes array.

Also fixed some bugs in the _export function

Thanks for your kind comments too :o).
