If you've purged both your local dir and the installation dir it should work. I'm guessing that it's something that I've changed in the media that's broken, it sounds like the standard "duplicate resource names creating strange errors" problem. If I could look at ember.log I should be able to figure it out, otherwise I'll probably get the same error when I do a clean checkout and installation myself. I'll do that later today when I get home.

Btw, I've just now created a branch for 0.5.4, so hopefully I'll be able to release it within the week.

Sincerely Erik

I have tried completely removing my local settings directory, and
purging the local install prefix. I seem to remember this worked last

something simple I am missing out, let me know, otherwise I'll file a
