You've hit a little bug I only discovered a few days ago. You possibly
don't have a "default" value set in the rules file. Make sure you have a
default value of the type
FromOrTo: default       filename-goes-here
You may be able to leave the "filename-goes-here" completely blank, but you
do need a "default" line. The inbuilt default default values have the wrong
paths in them in some systems.

This is fixed in the next release. But it's still always a very good idea
to set the default value yourself anyway, as you would have to dig in the
code to see what default value is used if you don't set one.
