I've never seen this error before and I have no idea why it would be failing there. Does the sample counter log work? Does it work when you use 1 thread?

Can you send me the counter log, so that I can debug it? If small enough, attach it to this request. Otherwise, consider putting it on SkyDrive. Thank you.

Sample works, Single threaded works for me.
BLG is 290MB, I will send you the link for Skydrive later, if you want to have a look for multi threading (I use it quite often and I down want to miss it;)
But again, single threaded worked for me this time.
Thanks for your support,

I received your counter log and I'm able to reproduce the problem. Debugging it...

I made a few fixes that should fix this. I will release it in v2.4 which will come out within the next few days.
