Ron & Sonny,
If you are using MySQL to drive your back-end, the problem lies in the
userdb.mysql file. It is not in proper sync. with the userdb.txt file.
If you correct the errors in the userdb.mysql file, this problem seems to
completely go away.
It has actually been around since the 3.XX version of MiniVend...
I have had it appear with two different clients, and correcting that definitions
file in both cases caused the problem to go away.
