      Hello rysiornia,

      could you please try and upgrade to
      BASE-1.4.1?  Several bugs have been
      fixed in the meantime, including the one you stumbled over.

      If this does not help, then please try the
      CVS version of BASE. Infos about how to download
      the CVS version can be found at

      Bye, bye

      Are you using the debian package or the source package from here.  If the Debian package, we do not support it and I would recommend that you switch  using the source package.

      The guide you link to talks about using version 1.2.5 of BASE.  I am assuming you are not running that old of a version?
