Try setting NoAbsolute No in your .cfg to test if that helps.  Somewhere in 
the construct code it's accessing status.construct with the wrong path and 
voilating security (when using purchase orders).

To narrow down where these are coming from:  on one screen, do a 'tail -f 
error.log'.  That gives you a continuous realtime output of the errors.

Then, go through the site, and every time you click, see which errors come 
up on the screen.  That way you can know it's when you click "place order" 
or when you click "checkout", etc.
