My quick tests indicates that UDF parameters that are declared using
CSTRING will generate the error that you are seeing, but I haven't
taken the time to test with using VARCHAR.

Is the UDF parameter declared using CSTRING? If yes, try declaring it
using VARCHAR instead, just to see what happens.

Let us know the results.
