Thanks for the -f tip. I thought the errors were significant, but now I 
understood they are not.
I will reply to the thread with more information if upgrading does not solve 
It is a vanilla 0.16 with a few packages installed, no security framework. 
I will share the whole environment also.
Git has been upgraded so I will try installing the newer version next.
