Problems with Mediator mapping when using multiple inheritance

I'm using RL for quite some time now and recently switched to RL 2.0.0. It all worked nicely until things got a little bit more complex.

I'm developing a structured mobile app with several Pages and Buttons all deriving from a single BaseItem class. The BaseItem class has a set data function which is called by the BaseMediator with data from the server. The Mediator knows which data to fetch, so I can rely on a single Mediator to do all the loading work.

The structure is about as follows:

Button1 extends BaseItem
Button2 extends Button1

Page1 extends BaseItem
Page2 extends Page1
MainPage extends Page1

In RobotLegs 1.5.2 I would have used these mappings for every element which worked just fine:

mediatorMap.mapView(MainPage, BaseMediator, BaseItem);
mediatorMap.mapView(Button2, BaseMediator, BaseItem);
mediatorMap.mapView(Page2, BaseMediator, BaseItem);

in RL 2 however, there is no parameter for a BaseClass so;

tells me Injector is missing a mapping to handle injection into property "view" of object "[object BaseMediator]"...

So i changed it to BaseItem and hoped the built-in TypeMatcher will do it correctly;

but it throws an error in VigilanceExtension stating **Injector mapping override for type [class BaseItem] with name (sic!) **

Have I missed something trivial here? Or is there an error in SwiftSuspenders (The 2nd case let's me think of this)?
I downloaded the latest package from github using the included Swiftsuspenders-v2.0.0rc3.swc
Attached you'll find my code.

Developing with Intellij Idea 12
Pure ActionScript for Mobile
with Flex SDK 4.6.0, Air 4.0 beta
(but didn't work on regular web project either)

    As often, I eventually found a solution myself after posting it online. Still, it may help others.

    Using; deactivating the VigilanceExtension and setting LogLevel to WARN in the Bundle removes all unwanted output.

    However, I don't think that using above mapping should produce a warning at all.

    Hey Reinbert,

    Your first post got stuck into the spam filter of the forum. I've restored it.

    This should work just fine:;

    I'll take a look at your attached project and report back my findings

    I looked at your classes.
    You're adding child views inside of the set data() method.
    I added a handler for (each) view's ADDED_TO_STAGE, where I added their child-views. (Note: I was overriding an addedtostage handler of the BaseView in the derived views)
    That seems to work. Each view has its own BaseMediator.

    The mapping is :;

    and [Inject] public var view:BaseItem; is injected into BaseMediator

    Try it out and let me know how it goes.
