Thanks, that was the hint I was missing. 

The library was "almost" empty. I nuked it completely and now it's
behaving as expected. The strategy you describe for baz 1.3 (and that
I've seen mentioned in other threads) seems a  more scalable approach
for large projects. I have to confess that multi-GB libraries for a
project that is ~50MB of untarred source seemed a but much.

I think I now understand why the emphasis on "rolling" your archive
periodically (yearly), as each of those archive switches limits how
far back library reconstruction goes. I rather use cacherevs.
