H1B - L1B 6 year rule question

I came here in Aug-2005 on an L1 and moved to a H1 in Oct-07. Will my 6 years complete in 2011(considering L1+h1) or 2013 (considering only H1)?

I have read some posts that say that the L1 stay is not counted.

Could someone please clarify?

The time spent on H1 and L1 combined cannot exceed 6 years unless you are under certain circumstance. Answering the original question, your status will end in 2011.

I'm in similar problem (L1 + h1 nearing 6 years) and would like to know if i follow into certain circumstances mentioned above.
I have been out of US for one year but with multiple breaks (not continously).

Thanks in Advance.
