Start Reading not working on Kindle 4

Hi Everyone,

I'm having a problem converting an EPub to Mobi with Kindlegen 2.4.

I'm using the <guide> section to specify the start point. I've tried every combination imaginable, but basically:

<guide>
<reference href="Text/part0001.xhtml" title="Start Reading" type="text" />
<reference href="Text/part0000.xhtml" title="Table Of Contents" type="toc" />
</guide>

The resulting .mobi works on the Kindle Keyboard, but not on Kindle 4: the book opens up in the middle of the TOC (not even in the beginning!).

I unpacked the .mobi, and found that there are TWO "text" elements in the mobi8 EPub:

<guide>
<reference href="Text/part0001.xhtml" title="Start Reading" type="text" />
<reference href="Text/part0000.xhtml" title="Table Of Contents" type="toc" />
<reference href="Text/part0001.xhtml" type="text">
</guide>

Could this be the problem? Or perhaps something else?

Thank you for any ideas!

Nathaniel
