Good morning Alastair (my time :-)

As you say, I believe you have a problem unrelated to the Nicknames file
but connected to the AVness of your machine. Yesterday I sent to the list
a request for all AV owners to respond with the success/failure on their
machine. I haven't gotten responses yet.

This 227 error: Mac OS or CUSM? Does anyone else see this, in the
post-long-nicknames era?
