I am using Nestacpe in my everyday life, and haven't yet encountered
the problem you mention (I don't flush my nestacpe cache and
everything still works fine). 

Again, Jigsaw write the .jigidx files only when it thinks it is a good
time to do so, and in your case it is when Jigsaw exists. So if you
actually want to *see* the changes, you will have to kill Jigsaw
(using /Admin/Exit), and then use the nice trick.

There is still something I don't understand: how you generated these
buggy .jigidx file. I think I remember some situations where the
SimplResourceStore main method won't be able to restore some resources
(because it is not run in the full server environment). This may be
the casue of the exception you see. Do you see the same exceptions
when running Jigsaw and accessing the same resources ?

Anselm.
