for me it's worked wonderfully... especially since i do a lot of photo 
manip (so i work in ultr-hi res all the time) and work with a lot of ad 
agencies (so i get CMYK files all the time)... as such, i was hard to 
convince there were other tools out there that could do a better 
job... of note, however, is i used Debablizer when i first started web 
work, since PS had no easy way to manipulate the color palette...

to bring it full circle and back on to the original topic...

i've found that exchanging text-heavy PSDs with agencies, 
esepcially when i don't have the font and/or it came from a Mac (i 
use a wintel box), IR will chunk like nobody's bizness... a lot of that 
got resolved when i upgraded to win2k...

so first, eliminate any possibility of it being file-specific, and take it 
from there...
