Wrong hex file selected for ArduinoISP (F3)

Hello all,

I have successfully loaded the ArduinoISP into one board (Modern Devices BBB with ATMEGA168). I hooked up the 3 status LEDs and the heartbeat LED seems to be working and the other LEDs flash when I attempt to load a bootloader into another ATMEGA168.

I have connected the "programmer" BBB to a second BBB containing the ATMEGA168 to load the bootstrap program into according to the instructions at http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/ArduinoISP.

I selected "Arduino Diecimila, Duemilanove, or Nano with AT168" for the target. However the programming fails. It appears that a bogus bootloader hex filename is passed to avrdude. In my case the argument looks like -Ulock:w:0x3F:m.

I turned on verbose debugging and the entire log file is attached. Oddly enough I get the same error on Mac OS X 10.5.8 (PPC) as well as Windows XP. Does anyone have an ideas?
