Actually for 2.1 released. Running on WinXPPro SP2.

When I try to start iPodder from the command line with
the -f switch to enable a different favs file, I get an
error and the following in the log file:

<snip>
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "gui.py", line 4, in ?
File "iPodderGui.pyc", line 3621, in main
File "iPodderGui.pyc", line 666, in __init__

supported_languages
WindowsError: [Errno 3] The system cannot find the path
specified: 'C:\\Documents and
Settings\\cschlege\\localization\\catalog/*.*'
</snip>

I'm using the -f switch as I interpret from the docs at
configuration.py in the cvs (v1.6). Looking at def
makeCommandLineParser(), I'm using the command line
ipodder.exe -f [favs file path]. When I do so I get
the errors above and ipodder fails to start.

Am I missing something?

    One thing that's odd about this is that I thought the config
    information for ipodder was in the Program Files directory -
    for instance the localization\catalog folder lives there,
    not in Docs and Settings.

    When I make a copy of the localization path the ipodder's
    looking for at the destination that it's looking for it, I
    get the following fatal error in the log file:

    wx._core.PyAssertionError: C++ assertion "wxAssertFailure"

    Hope this helps....
