Robert, thanks for the report. I'm not able to reproduce this problem on my
$ unison -version
unison version 2.27.48
A few questions: Did you have the previous version of unison2.27 installed, and
if so did it work properly? If you didn't try it, please try installing it over
the current release:
tar -C/ -jxf unison2.27-2.27.29-1.tar.bz2
Then run 'unison-2.27 -version' again and please let me know if it works.
