Nope, barcelona2014 is the only one that was modified.
I restarted the test server and now it works. My guess is that
when you were modifying your act.ini, you saved it in a form
that the code didn't like. Then, you may have reloaded a page,
which incited the code to reload the config, thus putting it
in a bad state from which it couldn't get back.

If you remember the changes you did, I'd be interested, in order
to strengthen the code and avoid something similar in the future.
