What is the exception that you are getting?

I get the same kind of exception trying to get the UserAuthor from a blog. If i do something like

var author = (UserAuthor)blog.Author;

it works fine (because so far the author is always a UserAuthor), but when I try to be polite and check like:

var author = blog.Author as UserAuthor;
if (author != null) // BOOM

I get a stack overflow exception from EPiServer.Common.Framework.Impl.dll (no further details because VS can't give them to me when the stack is in overflow).

If I remember correctly, constructs like

UserAuthor author = null;
if (blog.Author is UserAuthor) { author = (UserAuthor)blog.Author; }
if (author != null) ...

work just fine, but my memory could be playing tricks.
