Hi, its kind of difficult to post this here, because even the file names are and its be a bit of work to change all that. The attribute error is like this:

attribute differs: first.data['size']=350 != second.data['size']=340

I managed to patch rpath.py so the tmp file doesn't get deleted. I found that the tmp file is in fact identical to the source, and the true size is 340 (of both the tmp file as well as the source). Strangely, also as of now its now only 24 files that show this behaviour. I'm really going crazy with this.

Thanks Mike,

I tried your patch and actually had created something similar myself right
before you replied, but made sure to try your patch as well, since my python
skills are at best rudimentary.

Anyhow, both modifications lead to the result that apparently the size
doesn't match. Over the last few days the number of affected files has
increased to 52, even though the "new" four files with this error also
haven't changed in months.

Anyhow when I copy these files from the source by hand (using the "cp"
command in my shell), the size matches. Also a curious other observation is
that starting from the second error the size attribute of the first argument
is always identical to the size attribute of the second argument of the
previous error. Its too weird to be a coincident. The files affected are not
in the same directories nor seem to have many other connections, other than
being ascii files of the same format and extension (but so are the other

Is there a patch that the tmp file will NOT be deleted in case an error
occurs? I believe taking a look at these files will be quite instructive.


Please post the verbose messages for the first few problem files.

I don't know of any such patch.  You might try putting a return as the
first line of TempFile.py, class TempFile, def delete().  Never tried
this so I don't know what it will do.
