    Ok I will try that.
    I am using twenty ten.
    Site is just localhost at present.Wordpress of course.
    If it fails again I will email the source.

    As a seperate attack on this problem I have also tried to programmatically create a post with my custom field to generate a Map.
    The post is generated but not the map.
    I first create a draft post, update the custom field and then update the post status to publish.
    Any thoughts on this approach appreciated.
    //create a new post to create a new map.
    $postcode= ‘KT17’;
    global $user_ID;
    $my_post = array(
    ‘post_title’ => ‘Epsom’,
    ‘post_content’ => ‘Postcodes’,
    ‘post_status’ => ‘draft’,
    ‘post_date’ => date(‘Y-m-d H:i:s’),
    ‘post_author’ => $user_ID,
    ‘post_type’ => ‘post’,
    ‘post_category’ => array(0)
    );
    $new_post_id = wp_insert_post( $my_post );
    if ($new_post_id == 0) {
    echo ‘Could not create the post.’;
    }
    else {
    echo ‘New post created.’;
    }
    update_post_meta($new_post_id, ‘postcode’, $postcode);//add the custom field
    $status= ‘publish’;//set status to publish
