One other possibility is that the function was broken in some orgmode version
for a short while: you might be unlucky enough to update at just the wrong
time and see the problem, but most of us might be using versions either
before the breakage or after the fix.

So another useful thing to do is pull the latest and try it out. Assuming
it works, you can continue with latest or check out an earlier version
that includes the fix (most people do the former, I think).
