Cannot view WMSLayer nwhen basemap set

I have found that if my map object has a basemap property set then the WMSLayer does not display when retrieving by resourceInfo method. When I do not set the basemap property then the WMSLayer is displayed.

This is not very useful as I need to see the basemap. I dont know if this is a bug or me, I have no solution at the moment so any help greatly appreciated.

Here is the url 'http://npdwms.npd.no/NPD_FactMap.asp' and layer is 'Quadrants'

I tried setting the visibility to no avail.

I do not have this problem when retrieving by proxy method but I would rather use the resourceInfo method

Here is my code
