    edit - ive noticed there is no Gentle.config in the MP directory but there is on another install of mine..i've copied the file across (no idea if/how it got deleted?) but that hasnt fixed the problem..i'll check permissions next...nope, permissions OK

    I copied the version from the TV server directory and all is OK now. Maybe there should be a bug report for this? If I can help any way please let me know. Cheers.
