Actually, none of that made any difference. The problem was that the function was overloaded, and it didn't know which to use without explicit cast. Giving the function a unique name, it worked as written.

I did read the instructions, BTW. It looked like it ought to work exactly the way I did. And it was only the overloading that threw it off. What about the original I posted made you think that it needs an explict call to bind? And it's static, so your rewrite isn't right anyway.
