Folder is not a folder???

I'm getting the following exception (snippet) when I'm trying to create a new folder and add it to an existing folder.  This existing folder, the "prospective parent" is a custom folder type.

I was able to use the same code to add a folder to a cmis:folder parent, so I'm wondering if there's something special I need to do to tell cmis that the parent I'm trying to add this child-folder to is a cmis:folder subtype…but it should be able to check that very easily using the BaseTypeId.

Code snippet:
   String typePlusAspects = "F:" + curTypeName + ",P:sys:hidden";
            props.put(PropertyIds.NAME, nameTemplate);
            props.put(PropertyIds.OBJECT_TYPE_ID, typePlusAspects);
            fldrObj = destFolder.createFolder(props);
Exception thrown:
org.apache.chemistry.opencmis.commons.exceptions.CmisInvalidArgumentException: Folder is not a folder!

Any ideas?

Thanks again,
