Thank you for your help, that worked.  But for the record, I have never
done anything outside the scope of the tutorial until the archives started
becoming corrupted.  Only once has my tinkering actually paid off.  All
the other times (five in total!) I had to delete everything and start the
archive from scratch.  I have no idea where tla was finding the code in
the "pristine cache" because as far as I know, it doesn't exist anymore. 
Hopefully, my archives will remain clean indefinitely now.

Thank you.
