Are these the latest CVS versions?  I've just tested this on my
box with up-to-date versions, and everything seems to work (both
for whole sequences and sub-sequences).  It's rather hard to see
where the problem is coming from :-(.

Just one (rather vague) suggestion.  Looking at your stack traces,
I think you might be using Tomcat 3.3.x.  We've had very bad experiences
with this release -- there've been a number of reported problems
which have caused a lot of headache, then mysteriously disappeared
when the user either upgraded to Tomcat 4.0 or downgraded to 3.2.
[For what it's worth, I did my testing today using 4.0.1].
