I believe someone else posted on this list about this problem not too long ago.

However, I can’t post them here or anywhere because there’s IP in it.

I’d be happy to pay a onetime amount to get this problem out of the way.

Since you already found that a fresh working copy works fine, that is the solution I would

well. Working copies can sometimes get messed up, and sometimes getting a new working copy
isn't such a bad idea.
