This is the part the I've changed from the default. If I remove the "opt"
clause, it runs, but with it it segfaults, very odd.

                Path = /root
                Path = /home
                Path = /opt

Umm, I could be in over my head. Let me try it on a different system that
I have more freedom with, and if I can reproduce the errors, I'll give you
ssh access to look at it in person. Or, you could send more debug
instructions like the last time.

I don't mind doing the debugging, but I feel less than qualified. I'm
wondering if there is something broken on the Linux system. It's a test
system I use at work and it gets a lot of stuff installed and uninstalled
(not all OSS is of high quality). If it works without error on another
system, then it's probably that.
