Subject: SINGLEFILEINDEX refusing to listfiles, claims filemap problems

I''ve had repeated run-ins with SINGLEFILEINDEX refusing to listfiles various copies of the lafite sources.  It claims that there''s something wrong with the filemap.  I tried this on three different versions of the lafite sources, with the same result--it runs for a lo-o-o-ong time before punting.'

In response to the message sent  27 Mar 84 12':42 PST from'
John, I had no trouble at all listing <LispCore>Library>LAFITE;10 -- could'
you describe the version of SINGLEFILEINDEX you are using?  remember that'
we LispCore folks should be loading preferentially from <LispCore>Library>'
(rather than <Lisp>Library>).'
Another possibility is some lossage in GETFILEMAP (from the FILEPKG file) --'
but I fixed the bug in it on March 11 of this year, and you sent your note'
from a sysout dated March 15.'
Incidentally, I''ll leave the hardcopy of LAFITE on your desk.'
