I get the feeling that this is due to me having run the upgrade from 9.04 to 9.10, and I assume you just installed 9.10 straight away. I wonder if something went wrong in the upgrade.
Yes, mine was a fresh install.

If you want to attach your Init/Default as a file for this thread I will take a look at it for differences. Also look for other files and permissions in the Init directory. I just have the file "Default".
