The current (svn 2397) version runs fine on my machine and renders both
basemap and maplint tiles; i'm running the client in xy mode tough. I
can't test the loop mode without breaking my setup though.

One interesting "feature": My client is recorded as "unknown" on the
Credits page. I believe there is a text file with the allowed client
versions (possibly /home/ojw/public_html/Data/Versions/versions.txt, from
the source of versions.inc) in which you should add "8|OK|Essen".

Are those files in tilesAtHome/maplint links to the ones in utils/maplint
or copies? You can make soft links in subversion, this should save copying
