Thanks.  I see I have both a .pan and a .pan2 that both have the same
permissions (as far as I can tell everything is rw for the users), but I
note that in .pan2 servers.xml has a blank password. If I edit this by hand
pan ignores it and changes it back to a blank password:

From the command line I get:-
