The countable Erdös-Menger conjecture with ends

Erdös conjectured that, given an infinite graph $G$ and vertex sets
$A,B\sub V(G)$, there exist a set $\P$ of disjoint $A$--$B$ paths in $G$ and an
$A$--$B$ separator $X$ `on'~$\P$, in the sense that $X$ consists of a choice of
one vertex from each path in~$\P$. We prove, for countable graphs~$G$, the
extension of this conjecture in which $A,B$ and $X$ are allowed to contain
ends as well as vertices, and where the closure of $A$ avoids $B$ and vice
versa. (Without the closure condition the extended conjecture is false.)
