We're still having latex woes in ticket 278.  Can you help?

We replaced all the \MPIreplace macros with deletebegin/end and updatebegin/end, but we're still getting "Float(s) lost".  It seems to have to do with a table in datatype.tex.  The table looks like this:

\constitem{MPI\_COMBINER\_NAMED}{a named predefined datatype}
\constitem{MPI\_COMBINER\_HVECTOR\_INTEGER}{\mpifunc{MPI\_TYPE\_HVECTOR} from Fortran}
\constitem{MPI\_COMBINER\_HVECTOR}{\mpifunc{MPI\_TYPE\_HVECTOR} from C or C++}
\constskipitem{}{\ \ and in some case Fortran}
\constskipitem{}{\ \  or \mpifunc{MPI\_TYPE\_CREATE\_HVECTOR}}

If we remove all the \MPIdelete* and \MPIupdate* macros, it builds ok.  If we put even one of them back, we get "Float(s) lost" and pdflatex aborts.  But other than that, we're totally stumped (we've wasted 2+ hours trying to solve this so far :-( ).

What should we do?
