I'm surprised by that, but perhaps that's one of the ways they cripple 
the free-trial version.

That's odd.  I suspect the one in the pvr sub-directory must have been 
created spuriously somehow.

Perhaps I should have mentioned that the duplicated lines don't matter, 
except that they slow down GiP unnecessarily, and therefore it's best to 
remove them.  I'm not sure what's causing the extra copy of the history 
file in pvr, but it may that something is changing to that sub-directory 
either before GiP is called, or else during its running.
