  The fact that it's not looking for a file called
but one called
which probably doesn't exist.....

  Perhaps you have a mistake in the command line you're using?  Perhaps you've
typed "~password-file=XXXX" when you meant to say "--password-file=XXXX"?
Yep, that's probably it.  You typed a tilde instead of a dash and it's being
expanded to your home dir path.

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
