Unfortunately no, it doesn't refer to any line no. I'll have a go myself I 
guess but it's a 1.3M file and I don't really have a clue what I'm looking 
for. All I can think to do is go through it comparing it with the backup from 
when it was working and see if I find something that looks wrong.

Thanks, hey.
