The default tagging method is to have explicit ID tags for each file;
they are stored in the .arch-ids subdirectories.  The behavior you see
is expected.

This can be configured in the per-directory .arch-inventory file or in
the per-working-directory {arch}/=tagging-method file.  The comments
in the latter explain it pretty well; you can also read Tom Lord's
Arch Tutorial ( --
the "Customizing the inventory Naming Conventions" section explains
this in more detail.
