I have been making changes in he serialization library recently - fixing
bugs. This turns out to be more difficult than first meets the eye. So
I'm a little bogged down on this. I did push some changes to develop,
things looked OK so I merged to master. I don't know if this is related
to the current issue.

As soon as I get my current issues resolved, I'll re-pull from master
and quadiple check that things work in my environments.
Unfortunately(?) that doesn't include windows.
