Consistent error 500's on File and Directory new definitions

Dear all,
Despite my newly rated karma status of 'new since 3 days ago' and '11' (gah ;-), I had been cruising at the heady heights of 40+ plus some badges having used Splunk and enjoyed this forum for about a year. This is my 1st question though, and I checked the answers beforehand, honest.
I'm seeing 500 Internal Server Error An error occurred while rendering the page template. See web_service.log.
When I attempt to define a new directory data source. The files sit on the indexer server, are all .txt files, appear ok in the config wizard even after my regex's.
The above log is pasted below:

quite a few of those...

If anybody could direct me where to start looking, I'd be most appreciative.

Found it. Splunkd totally waterlogged, timeouts.
Good material in here also about saved searches. Not sure its v5 but the /var/run/splunk/dispatch folder is filling at a prodigious rate: rt_scheduler_admin_rt_scheduler__admin_RVFBTElTX0dQRzEz... folders.
Phew. Time for Friday...
