The key point is *trailing newline*. There *was no* newline (just "cell
name<EOF>") in ThisCell; adding the newline fixed the issue. Conclusion:
this change you described was the reason.

That file was put into place originally by Debian package (the one in
stable) installation scripts, so all Debian users ought to expect the
same problem if they let the package scripts create their ThisCell.

I'm glad this's been resolved. This list is one of the most helpful
mailing lists I've ever come across, albeit sometimes the replies are
of the quite terse "read the manual" -type. =3D)
