The wix-debug.zip will give you .pdbs that will make the stack trace infinitely more useful.

I don't know what you're referring to about log dotted string. Is your example tag below not the *exact* code you are using? Can you provide the *exact* code that is causing the failure? Feel free to change names to protect the innocent but the example provided doesn't fail for us.

I did not do the wix-debug item wondering if the bug has to do with the long dotted string. I had an issue with a long dotted string also when using the assembly version bind command, which I solved by replacing the long dotted string with a shorted directory id. As I recall having more than 2 or 3 dots thew a monkey wrench at the parser. let me know if you'd like info on that as well.
