more like a miracle, i would say.  looking at the time stamps of those
directories, are you quite sure they were created by the feature cache
operation?  if so, could you forward me (in private email) the log file
for that run?

more high-level: i am wondering whether to move this kind of discussion 
to the more restricted `logon' mailing list?  since the parse selection
experiments are only supported in the LOGON tree anyway, these days, it
may be that the `logon' list gives a better approximation of the target 
audience for this discussion?

shall we just say that `developers' who want to follow the debugging of
the parse selection (and other MaxEnt) tools should sign up at:
