I had a similar problem. My buffs/debuffs would not display. I did a clean install of PitBull and now I have no config options, and character mana/health show up as "SYNTAX ERROR".
Buffs and Debuffs show up, only in an awkward place (half covered by the health/mana bars.)
Insight is appreciated. ^_^
(until I figure this out... AG is working nicely for my needs.)
