It seems to have problems every time I make a change to my Keymapping
packages releases. It generates a bogus "map" file which the SqueakMap
browser then downloads into my fresh image (to test my release!). It is
likely that I can reproduce this problem since it seems to happen every
time I make a change through the web interface. Are you (Goran)
interested in looking into it?
BTW, for the novice this would be very troublesome since once you have a
bad map file you have to dig around and delete it (or all of them) not
to mention the fact that this isn't document anywhere. Could we just
have any failure to load a map cause all of the files to be deleted?
Since they are just cached for efficiency this might help mitigate what
seems to be a more serious bug. Even once this bug is fixed it would
also help to get around problems that might occur while downloading a
map. This has bitten me on more than one occassion. I could probably
provide the hack if there is any indication that the idea is well received.
