  I probably shouldn't admit this, but I've never used IRC. I can
probably learn, although I have a low threshold for arcane commands.

  I just double checked. The file is there.

  I've done that. In fact I removed my build directory as well as all of
the .xcodeproj files. No joy.

  I also cleared the SharedPrecompiledHeaders folder. That didn't change
anything either.

  I could always blow away the entire project and redownload everything,
but that wouldn't help find where the problem lies.

  I just had a thought. Could it possibly have something to do with my
XCode preferences?
