I was able to resolve this issue by making a change.
The following line in XAP.CS was causing the issue.
System.Xml.XmlTextReader reader = new
I changed it to
System.Xml.XmlTextReader reader = new XmlTextReader(strResourceName);
That resolved trying to create the "usermap" for the subweb.

Now when I'm trying to "add" the permissions back to the new web that
I created I receive the following error:
WSSUserUtil Version 2.5.2595.23546
!----->WARNING!!!!! Syntax Error
!----->WARNING!!!!! Required argument usermap not specified
I don't understand why it is looking for the "usermap" argument when
the command to add permissions is as follows:

C:\SPUtilSiute_Release2.5\SPUtilSuite\WSS\SPUserUtil>wssuserutil -o
add -url
rbcportal.fg.rbc.com/.../TestWSSPermissionsMigration -webfile

Actually, I'm not sure why that's fixing your problem of it wanting the usermap

The probably was probably in the syntax file, not the argument processor.

See blogs.msdn.com/.../602057.aspx where I note
that it was a required operation but wasn't used...It meant that I needed to fix
the syntax file, not the argument processor.

The Syntax file was compiled into WSSUserUtil as a resource file, so it looks to
me that all you did was prevent it from reading from the compiled in resource,
to something else

I recommend changing it back, putting in a dummy usermap, and riding with that

Actually by adding the usermap file as well it worked!

C:\SPUtilSiute_Release2.5\SPUtilSuite\WSS\SPUserUtil>wssuserutil -o add  -url
<rbcportal.fg.rbc.com/.../TestWSSPermissionsMigration> -usermap
-webfile C:\TestWSSUserUtilPermissions-webs.xml

I'm still puzzled over this though.
Your documentation does says to use only the -webfile when readding the

You are correct...the documentation that was included in the package says to use
only the -webfile when reading the permissions.

I later found out I left a "requirement" check for the -usermap switch, even
though it wasn't needed, thus the reason I wrote the following comment on my
blog posting I just referred to:.

"5. Use the add  operation to add these users with their prescribed rights to

WSSUserUtil -o add -usermap singleuser.xml -webfile c:\addusers.xml -verbose

Note: The usermap operation is a required parameter even though is NOT used in
the add operation. This is a small inconsistency that will be corrected at a
later date."

I put that out there, because the documentation included would not be updated
till a later date, as well, to have some way to let approximately 50,000 users
who downloaded it be aware
