Check to make sure the FILEPANE.DB entry in MECONFIG.DB is starting on a new line, especially if it’s being added to the end of MECONFIG.DB . Exit Multi-Edit and restart and then look at MECONFIG.DB . There’s a bug in Multi-Edit where it sometimes has problems adding a new line to the end of the file. When you exit and restart Multi-Edit you may find the new entry was actually appended to the last line rather than starting on a new line.

This bug can be avoided if you set CR/LF at EOF and Control-Z at EOF, but then you always get an extra blank line at the end of your files. (TOOLS -> CUSTOMIZE -> Editing(left side).)
