Aah... That explains a lot. I paid little attention to the subject line of your post and did not realize you were attempting to use something other than $UserBaseDirectory/Kernel/init.m. If I led you to think I was using something other than $UserBaseDirectory/Kernel/init.m I apologize for any confusion I may of caused.
