You're welcome.  :)

I agree.

The short test cases might hold clues as to common causes for these errors?

Karl, you managed to fix the algorithm without knowing what file configurations 
spurious conflicts?

If files do end up needing to be copied, I think the compromise might be that 
when the
files can't be found, the tests pass anyhow, perhaps with a warning in the log.

Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...  disarm only those who are neither
inclined nor determined to commit crimes...  Such laws make things worse for
the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage
than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater
confidence than an armed man.
