I know you fixed this, but could it be the problem with the format of  
the ini file is "wrong"?

Don't remember the exact details, but something to do with where the  
brackets for each section are in the line or spacing of some  
sort...I'll have to dig through my archives to try and find what we  
ended up doing to fix that issue.
