I have tried your exhibit B on my machine, with TeXLive 2010, and it worked 
I then installed TeXLive 2011 and it again worked perfectly. My guess is that 
something on your system is interfering. Maybe you have an old version of some 
package in your personal tex tree that is being used. Take a look at your log 
file; it should show you the versions of each package that are being used to 
typeset your document.

For instance, for enumitem, mine says:

Package: enumitem 2009/05/18 v2.2 Customized lists

and for xkeyval:

Package: xkeyval 2008/08/13 v2.6a package option processing (HA)

File: xkeyval.tex 2008/08/13 v2.6a key=value parser (HA)
