I had the same problem with 7.2...  I never found a satisfactory cause, but my solution was to re-run the script (after a few minutes of looking around for the source of the problem and doing nothing in the process)...  it completed properly that time.

My scripts were identical copy pasta from the online book...  unsure why it worked the second time.

I hope this is of use, and perhaps someone else can explain how i got so lucky with it...  :)

Note: Please forgive the top-post, my phone doesn't allow me to position the quote as i want to...
