[ic] Problems with no absolutes in config file / Using one source file for databases in two stores

I have two stores currently and I would like to run them off the same 
source file for each of their product databases.

To do this I have included the following line in one of my store's config 
file to point to a datasource file in my other store:
Database products /var/lib/interchange/westerbeke/products/products.txt TAB

When I try to access this file in the new store I get the following entry 
in my error.log file: RYdkbdAQ: - [21/March/2001:11:53:47 -0500] 
universal /cgi-bin/universal/32977 Security violation for
NoAbsolute, trying to import 
/var/lib/interchange/westerbeke/products/products.txt RYdkbdAQ: - [21/March/2001:11:53:47 -0500] 
universal /cgi-bin/universal/32977 Runtime error: Security

Now, you would think that this means that I do not have my NoAbsolute set 
to no in my overall catalog.cfg at /var/lib/interchange/catalog.cfg,
however here is that line as it appears in my file:

NoAbsolute No

I have stopped and restarted the Interchange server ... without success.

Any ideas?  Am I missing something obvious?  Is there a specific order in 
which directives such as NoAbsolute need to be placed in the catalog.cfg 
file?  I have tried it at both the beginning and the end of the file.
