Can't climb ladders since 1.5_01

A few problems since update. HD texture pack needed updating but now causes the game to crash whenever I hit a mob. I guess this is a texture pack issue though so I can live with this problem for now. I've seen another post about weird shadows on the tops of stairs which seems to resolve with smooth shadows turned on... I can't remember why I hadn't turned them already... there may have been a reason.
Biggest issue though is that I can't climb ladders properly anymore. Previously merely walking at one would cause me to begin climbing, now only jumping at the ladder will cause me to climb. Once I get to the top of the ladder though, I can't go any further and can't get off at the top I just keep bumping into the top of an invisible barrier type issue-ma-problem.
Anyone else experienced this or have a fix?
This is my first post - sorry if there are already threads about this issue but there doesn't seem to be a search function. Thanks very much!

Since 1.5_01 ladders need to be built properly.
In real life you probably can not lift your leg more than one meter high while standing one foot on a ladder pole thing.
Instead of this:

Thanks guys, I can actually lift my legs approximately 1.2 metres whilst climbing ladders but I suppose I'll have to live within the limitations of everyone else (I'm kidding of course).
Thanks for the quick answers!

I think the real problem is that Notch completely broke ladders with gaps instead of just discouraging their creation and usage.

So I suggested systematic gapped ladder discouragement method (instead of completly breaking them) in the Suggestions forum. (Thread here: http://www.minecraft...hp?f=1&t=308426)

Not Minecraft-related, I know - but the author wants more readers - and to be honest, he deserves them!
