This is not a BUG in BASE, you have a self-inflected injury to another
support program. 

Go back and read all the replies that you have received from all the users
to you from this list. The answer as to how to trouble shoot, is all there.
You are going all back over the same problems multiple times, and no I'm not
going to go back through all the emails and point out the ones you need to
read.
