Hmm.  It doesn't seem to cause a stack trace when that occurs.  It just
fails to overwrite the files, and as a result doesn't checkpoint the
server.  I'll try to run it under the Symantec debugger, find out exactly
where it's happening, and get back to you.

(Note: I'm using Jigsaw 1.0a3, without any of the patches you have posted
to this list -- just too lazy/preoccupied to deal with the hassle of
recompiling those classes and reintegrating into jigsaw.zip.  Hopefully,
the next version is imminent...)
