18:48 aubreyja Hey goehle - around?
18:48 goehle yeah
18:49 aubreyja I'm seeing an error on one of the maa servers coming from ASimpleCombinedHeaderFile.pg.  Seems this line:
18:49 aubreyja hold on lost it...
18:49 goehle kk
18:50 aubreyja TEXT(MODES(TeX =>EV3(<<'EOT'),HTML=>""));
18:50 aubreyja is causing trouble.
18:50 aubreyja Seems display mode "" is now causing some friction...
18:51 aubreyja ERRORS from evaluating PG file:
18:51 aubreyja begin|||ERROR in defining MODES: neither display mode '' nor any fallback modes () supplied. at line 1308 of [PG]/macros/PGbasicmacros.pl Died within main::MODES....
18:51 aubreyja any idea why that might be?
18:51 goehle hmm
18:51 goehle that header file works on my machine
18:52 goehle the error is complaining about nothing being supplied to modes
18:52 goehle but there are two display modes clearly being supplied there
18:52 goehle is there an empty MODES() anywhere in the file?
18:52 aubreyja hmm...just a sec
18:53 aubreyja wait a minute - do you see this at the top of the problem editor: Project-Id-Version: WeBWorK Online Homework System POT-Creation-Date: PO-Revision-Date: Last-Translator: Michael Gage Language-Team: Webwork language team MIME-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8 Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit X-Poedit-Language: English X-Poedit-Country: UNITED STATES
18:54 goehle yeah
18:54 goehle mike tells me that the breadcrumbs have always been a little crazy when editing headers
18:57 aubreyja ok, strange - it seems to be working in my test course, but not in this one user's course
18:58 goehle could you do a diff on the files
18:58 goehle maybe that one was modified
19:09 goehle is there a login for that?
