Bingo. It was a file and is now a directory.
I.e. it was a sort of archive, and now it is there extracted under the name of
the archive. Not very elegant IMHO.

Previous:
$ ls -al uuid-key-generator.sar
-rw-rw-r-- 1 mgirod iona 12436 Nov 14 11:42 uuid-key-generator.sar
$ file uuid-key-generator.sar
uuid-key-generator.sar: Zip archive data, at least v2.0 to extract

New:
$ ls -al uuid-key-generator.sar
total 16
drwxr-xr-x 4 mgirod iona 4096 Oct 23 18:00 .
drwxr-xr-x 11 mgirod iona 4096 Oct 23 18:00 ..
drwxr-xr-x 2 mgirod iona 4096 Oct 23 18:00 META-INF

Thanks. I searched it too and found only one pending item for svn_load_dirs.pl:

#2241: http://tinyurl.com/y6vent

It is related, but doesn't address the same exact problem.
In addition, I don't quite get its state... It is 'NEW',
but has been for a long time, and I don't see any progress.
If I should try to patch the script, should I do it on top of this or not?
Not quite sure.
Have to look at it better, trying to get a test case...

I think I'll submit an issue for now.

Marc
