This code seems OK (though without formatting there could be unseen issues). How do you build and test it?

If you still have trouble, make a snapshot of your workspace and post the link to it here, then we can more easily (and accurately) replicate the issue.

You might want to add a newline, but otherwise it seems to work OK for me:
