We have been using the pRSET vector series here routinely and have had
similar problems with them. I have to admit, we got around it using 
Carbenicillin (which as you say is too damn expensive)....I thought 
about maybe using something like Methicillin instead. This is even
less metabolisable and is cheaper (from some comapanies) than 
Ampicillin. I havnt tried it tho so........ :P
