Not me. :P  I know a bit of Mandarin, and what messes me up isn't really
the tones, but all of the odd affricates.  Cantonese seems to not be quite
as bad in this respect, but I don't really know too much about Cantonese
phonology.

I do like the final stops, though.  Don't ask me why, I just do. :P
