I'm using Eset Smart Security. But I am pretty sure it has nothing to do with it. As I said, v30 or lower works for me and I get no error. Something must have changed for 30>31 that does this for me.
I would be more willing to blame some extension/s for that than AV. I think I will try a pure install without any settings carrying over and no extensions and see how that goes. Hope is pretty minimal though.
