It's a bit mysterious, but I think what happend is that I did a
library-add while the script was running, and this reused an
inode number that the script already had in its contents cache. So when the script got around to the newly-added revision, it
misidentified the contents of a file, and relinked it to the
wrong thing.

Ah, nasty. Did you already implement whatever is needed to prevent this from happening

Not yet. Hmm. I think we just need to include size, mode and mtime in the id. Cool. (Technically possible to circumvent, but this is a chance all Arch clients take.)

or should we ensure that no one accesses the library while running the script?

For now, yeah.  I'll see what I can do.
