'Invalid sender' error after upgrading to geth 1.4.0

My program was able to craft and send raw transactions to geth v1.3.3 before, but after I upgrade to geth v1.4.0, calling sendRawTransaction over RPC sometimes (!) returns invalid sender error.

Is transaction serialization (i.e. RLP) changed somehow from v1.3.3 to v1.4.0? Here is a dump of my raw transaction that triggers an invalid user error:

A machine readable version is:

Most interestingly, this error is probabilistic: restarting my program sometimes works. But I couldn't think of any randomness involved in my program, other than the randomness in ECDSA. But I'm using a standard crypto lib and it has been working just fine.

Any idea?

    I am having a similar situation. Any updates? Using bloc/ethlightjs with helpers.sendFunctionTx. Under the cover it is still sendRawTransaction with json-rpc.

    driving me nuts. 2 consecutive calls, nothing is changing:
