Ok, my bad. Put this one down to user error.
I've just found that last night I was editing entirely the wrong file. I
seem to have ended up with two files with the same name (possibly due to
the syncing software I have to keep the files in sync between different
computers), and the one with the Witch.MOD wasn't the one being loaded
Now I know I'm loading the right file, and it's working fine, so I don't
need to bother you now.
