Has anyone sucessfully bridged between Invision's Powerboard v3.1 forum and the current release of Coppermine 1.5.12?

A site which was working with Invision v2.x and Coppermine 1.4 has been upgraded to the latest versions of each and the existing bridge no longer worked but neither does the one provided via the Coppermine forum at http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php?topic=66144.0

The forum is at http://forum.domain.com and the gallery is at http://gallery.domain.com but it's not a cookie problem because the cookies are for domain.com and both have no prefix but even if the gallert is moved to http://forum.domain.com/gallery/ it behaves the same

A logged in forum user shows as logged in when visiting the gallery, but the usergroups are not visible in Coppermine and no rights they should be assigned are visible - and cannot be set because the actual admin is logged in with as many rights as the regular users (none, can view thumbnails but not intermediate or fullsize pictures).  The regular administration menu bar is not displayed unless bridging is disabled.

"Use bridge app custom groups?" in the bridging wizard seems to have no effect at all.

I found a programmer familiar with Invision Powerboard via www.invisionfocus.com who developed a bridge for me.

It works great and the forum/gallery are once again bridged properly.

No answers from anyone on Experts Exchange, and I found a solution by paying a developer to create the code I needed.
