Thanks all for the clarifications, and thanks Joel for the story. I have nobody to blame but myself for my ignorance in this, and I'll take this lump as a lesson learned.

One other question, do I have to worry about foreign capital gain tax withholding too? Currently my positions have no such gains, and I just want to know for purposes of planning my exit from these positions.

Thanks again all.
