Hello Bryan Strader,
There is a bug in the Q3 2009 SP1 version that might be the cause for the result you describe. Could you please test your code with Q3 2009 SP2 that we release yesterday, to see if you can reproduce the problem with it as well? The bug that we are aware of is fixed the SP2 and that is why, in case your problem persists, please send me the code of your page that demonstrates it.
