I don't have the capability to dig into this at the moment... but if 
anyone were interested in using the latest version of CHUD with the 
latest version of ccl (and in particular, if it didn't work), I thought 
the following dialog might be useful.

Below you can see the history for the last time we had problems with 
CHUD, if that helps at all, and possibly of more interest is that 
group's magical (i.e. hard to find, from what I recall) email address:
perftools-feedback at group.apple.com
