Sorry for not getting to you sooner, I was out of the office for the weekend.
I'm not sure how good I would be trying to consult over Skype, especially when compared to the wealth of knowledge available from the myriad of users on the COW. Take, for example, the thread where you posted a question regarding the issue. I gave an answer which was technically accurate, but I left out potentially important bits of information. Jon Bagge expanded on it, explaining the bits that I left out and giving some extra tips, tutorial, and examples.
I think crowd-sourcing info like this forum does is a great way to resolve issues and to learn. It allows many people with many different perspectives to provide input.
However, if you are still struggling with it, I am willing to give what assistance I can. Although I think Jon's a better person for that; he's had more experience with this sort of workflow than I have.
