[developers] pyDelphin / [incr tsdb()] question

Dear colleagues,

I've run into a mysterious issue with the item files I've generated from
Xigt corpora, using an export script that in turn relies on pyDelphin: When
I use them to create [incr tsdb()] skeletons, I end up with profiles that
are partially but not fully functional: Browse | Items works, for example,
but when I try Process | All items or try clicking on an individual item to
process, I get just this message in the emacs buffer:

retrieve(): found 0 items (0 output specifications)

I suspect that this is because there's something missing or odd about the
item files, but comparing by hand to one that works (generated by Import |
Test items from within the [incr tsdb()] podium), I can't spot the

I've attached a small, two-line example that should reproduce the problem,
in case anyone has a moment to take a look. (I'm not sending a grammar for
this language, since the behavior can be observed with any grammar loaded
into the LKB --- the point of failure is before any parsing happens.)
