Summary:  We give an example of an operator weight $W$ satisfying the operator Hunt-Muckenhoupt-Wheeden $\mathbb{A}_2$ condition, but for which the Hilbert transform on $L^2(W)$ is unbounded. The construction relates weighted boundedness with the boundedness of vector Hankel operators. We establish a relationship between the norm of a vector Hankel operator and a certain natural (but not Nehari-Page) $\bmo$ norm of its symbol, which is logarithmic in dimension.
