I believe this is an old bug that has been fixed in the current version of
sorcery (0.8.2). You seem to be having quite a number of problems which may
all be related to the fact that you have an older or corrupt installation of
What worked for me was to grab the CVS version
(http://cvs.sourcemage.org/access.html) and run the install script contained
therein. If you are uncomfortable with that, you could grab the latest
stable tarball (created nightly) at http://download.sourcemage.org/sorcery/
and run that install script.
You will probably need to run 'scribe add stable|test|devel' or 'scribe update
stable|test|devel' depending on the state of your installation.
You can run sorcery to verify the version. It will be listed on the top line
of the initial box displayed.
