[Moin-user] Running moin reliably from a thumbdrive

Ladies and Gentlemen,
I need to be able to run moinmoin desktop from a thumbdrive. I
haven't been able to make that work. Can someone offer advice?
I've been running moinmoin desktop as a PIM and records organizer for
both personal and professional information for about six years. I
need to have access from both my home and work computers. Until
recently I'd been synchronizing my different computers using
mobile.me, but recent changes in our corporate IT security rules have
made that impossible.
My only option seems to be to run moin from a thumbdrive, but I can't
get moinmoin to run reliably. Sometimes it crashes with "Module not
found" and sometimes it crashes with a cache error.
Perhaps I could keep just the data on the thumb drive and move the
moin code to my hard drive, but I haven't been able to get moin to
look on the thumbdrive for its data.
If I can't get moin working, then probably I'll have to dump my
current database as static HTML files and start using something else.
I've heard good reports of the Squeak Swiki. But my first choice is
to stay with moin if there is any way I can get things to work.
I'm running Python 2.6.4 under Max OS X 10.5. I've been using I've
tried moin-1.84, -1.8.8, and -1.9.3 with all the data in the local
wiki/data/pages directory. I use the built-in server. I've got about
1000 pages of data and, I believe, about 2000 pages of attachments. I
don't know how many revision files, etc. The path on my thumbdrive
is /ThumbRoot/Wiki/moin-1.8.4/wikiserver.py. Data is at ThumbRoot/
Wiki/moin-1.8.4/wiki/data/pages. I've tried starting the server both
from the GUI and from a terminal window. In the terminal, I've tried
starting it from within the directory (./wikiserver.py) and using a
full path name (/Volumes/.../Wiki/moin-1.8.4/wikiserver.py) The
method of call didn't seem to make a difference.
