Thanks for the explanation and work around suggestion.  If I'm feeling
brave, perhaps I'll take a look at the addNextMethod and
callNextMethod computations.  We found this bug for a "real" use-case,
so I have some interest in a solution that doesn't involve changing
the initializers for the three classes involved...
