CellTable sorting : sorting several columns ?

I am using GWT 2.2 and the new CellTable sorting features, as described here :

There is a strange error (Umbrella exception, nothing else) when I use the columnSortHandler.setComparator(...) method.
I commented it out.

If i use the addColumnSortHandler(new ColumnSortEvent.Handler() { ...} method, it works.

However on one column only. I want to be able to sort the table, on whichever column i click on.

So i'm stuck :
either i figure out what's wrong with the setComparator(..) method
or i use the addColumnSortHandler(...) and in that case i need to figure out how to retrieve the name of the column
that is currently sorted.
Does anyone know what could be wrong ?

Here is the code :

SCJP 1.4, SCWCD 1.4, SCBCD 1.3, SCBCD 5
