Thanks, that was it!
I did try that earlier but must have stuff something else up which made me believe it didn't matter.
It would be Really Really Nice (tm) if there was more debugging for this feature - it feels like a "blind man with a Rubik's cube" situation :-/

I think it's doing something as it say 'working' for a short amount of time. Also if I crank up vfs debugging to 10 I get:
