I suspect you've been trying to change history.

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.

Deleting your archive and starting from scratch can constitute "changing history" IF you create a new archive with the same archive name as the old one.

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.

Yeah, tla can be pretty sneaky in that regard. It was probably finding the copies in old working directories. I'd recommend using greedy sparse revision libraries, anyway.

Anyhow, I'm sorry you've had these problems.
