Problem with glVertexAttribPointerARB

Hi all,
I have written a shader for vertex blending and met a nettlesome problem.
I try to use the the following code to send my bone data array into shader, pData is a array of “unsigned char bone[4]” for each vertex.

 GLint index = glGetAttribLocationARB(progObj, "bone");
ASSERT(index != -1);
glVertexAttribPointerARB(index, 4, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, GL_FALSE, 0, pData);

And below is the vertex blend shader:

// Vertex Shader Code
attribute vec4 bone;
attribute vec4 weight;
uniform mat4 boneMatrices[30];
const float fw = 1.0 / 255.0; 

void main() 
    vec4 blendVertex;
    vec4 blendWeight = weight;
	vec4 blendBone = bone;
	vec4 eclr = gl_Color;
    for(int i = 0; i < 4; i++)
    	if(blendWeight.x > 0.0)
			int b = int(blendBone.x);
			if(b > 10)
				eclr = vec4(1.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0);
				blendVertex += curweight.x * fw * vec4((boneMatrices[b] * gl_Vertex).xyz, 1.0);
     	 	blendBone = blendBone.yzwx;
    		blendWeight = blendWeight.yzwx;
		else break;
   	gl_Position = gl_ModelViewProjectionMatrix * gl_Vertex;
	gl_TexCoord[0] = gl_TextureMatrix[0] * gl_MultiTexCoord0;
    gl_FrontColor = eclr;

The problem is, I found the “blendBone” data in the shader is wrong, because the bone data value should not be greater than 10 according to the pData I sent.Believe me, I check it very carefully.

So is there any error in the code to send the GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE[4] data into vec4 shader variable? or is there any other context settings can affect the data sending/converting?

Env: NVidia Geforce 6200, Driver Version:81.85

Any tip would be appreciated.

oh, as stupid as me, I found the bug by myself.
I used a glBindBufferARB to bind vertex buffer in far front of the calling glVertexAttribPointerARB and did not restore it to 0, and then the pData from memory doesnt take effect.
