Dan - It's not bling causing the problem. I've had the exact same
problem before, and I've never used
the bling module.
Some history here... When I first installed e17 on this machine,
everything worked fine. Then I did an update, and
got this problem where e17 won't load from Entrance. I just stopped
using Entrance for some time, reinstalled it a few weeks later
and it worked fine... but broke the next time I updated again.
I just recently (last week) reinstalled Entrance again, and now it's
working great. I've never been able to find out exactly what
the cause is, though.
