I think your problems may be caused by a typo in the selfrc file.
We discovered this typo shortly after sending out the announcement.
The typo was fixed very quickly so most of you in self-interest should
not encounter any problems, but if you are among the few that have
gotten the bad version, here is the diff between selfrc with and without
< the trace if desired.'
> the trace if desired."
In other words, the single-quote should be changed to a duoble-quote.
P.S. Note that the selfrc file is copied to ~/.selfrc by the SelfUserSetup,
script so you have to fix the typo both in selfrc and your ~/.selfrc. Or
you can re-install Self, if that seems easier.
