Hi Ben,

You are right.  Tidy is wrong.  This is an old bug, where it doesn't check 
for the existence of the file.

You can disable the ~/.tidyrc "feature" by un-defining SUPPORT_GETPWNAM in 
the build.  You don't have to modify the source, but you do need to update 
the Makefile.  Update line 62 to read as follows:


The -U option to gcc undefines a preprocessor macro.  Then just run "make" 
with no arguments.

take it easy,
