I have just checked the version I have put on web.
The is no problem with the configuration on my PC with OS Windows.
I am not sure but it seems that Mathematica loads the configuration file twice.
May be this is because of $BaseDirectory and $UserBaseDirectory are the same.
Can you put the autoloading files into the Mathematica installation directory?
