[ic] Problems saving multiple simple options at checkout time

Hi Everyone,

This is a repost of my problem as it appears to have slipped through the 
net the last time.

I have items in my shop that have 2 simple options each.

Option1 = Condom Type

Option2 = Lube Type

The options are defined in the item option editor as:

Name: Lube Type
Label: Lube Type
         Light_Lube=Light Lube

Name: Condom Type
Label: Condom Type
         Extra_Strong=Extra Strong
         Ultra_Thin=Ultra Thin

The appear and work just fine on the fly, cart and checkout pages BUT when 
it comes to checkout time and to record the order, the options are simply 
being dropped.

The options text that appears in the ORDERLINE table is:

Condom Type: , Lube Type:

What appears to be happening is that the name/label is being recorded (as a 
comma separated list) but NOT the selections the user made.

Items in the store with only 1 option are being recorded without problems. 
This problem ONLY happens when there's more than one option to record.

I've googled extensively but I've not been able to turn up anything that 
helps. Does anyone have any ideas why this might be happening? Could it be 
the spaces in the label/name although I doubt it very much as they are 
being picked up correctly. If it helps, my original foundation store 
install behaves the same way, so it would hint at an IC internal problem?

For the record I'm using IC 4.8.7, RH 7.3 and Perl 5.6.1.

If any more information is needed please say and I'll get it.

Many thanks in advance to anyone that can shed some light on this :)
