TEXT() Function on picklist throwing err in CS3 Sandbox

I'm posting this here in the hopes that someone at SF will see it.  I tried submitting a case online, but the portal is down, and support lines are closed.


I'm working in sandbox, on the cs3 instance, which has had some performance problems last few days.  Not sure if that's related to my problem.


I'm using the TEXT() function to get the value of a picklist field in the formula for the rule, and it's throwing an err, saying:

" Error: Incorrect parameter for function TEXT(). Expected Number, Date, DateTime, received Picklist "


Umm, yeah, that's how it used to work, but that got changed, remember?  I know this sandbox is summer 09 enabled, b/c there are other summer09-only features that are available (like custom Campaign Member fields.)


Thanks for any help.
