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....
