Mike Johnston (The Online Photographer) has written quite a bit about
bokeh.  He has a pdf in which he rates many lenses for their bokeh.

He also comments that bokeh gets more problematic:

the larger the aperture
the closer the focus
the more distant the background
the more contrasty the background

No wonder I had problems.  My 3 photos included all of the problematic

Guess I'll try again.   The Summicron does get a 10 in the lens ratings.
