Linux hostname.com 2.6.32-30-generic-pae #59-Ubuntu SMP Tue Mar 1 23:01:33 UTC 2011 i686 GNU/Linux

Attaching the output of:

metamorphose2 -t -d -c /root/.metamorphose2/configs/config.cfg -a 3

The application seems to successfully scan the right directory, but does not automatically rename files as the documentation suggests. It does not exit or spawn a window either.

Additional observations:
- Using -a 0 does spawn a window. When it opens, all the right parameters are populated.
- Using -a 1, -a 2, -a 3, and no -a all yield the same results on the surface - as described above.
- If I pipe the output of the same command (with -a 3) to echo, a window does spawn, and the status bar displays "Cannot read path!". If I then hit the "Refresh" button without changing any arguments, it successfully rescans, renames, and exits. Random, but interesting and possible useful.

Excellent utility; hope this helps.
