Somehow, I wound up with an inode signature file whose entire contents were address@hidden The error I got was:

arch: ill formated input

I thought this was a reference to the project tree. It was actually a reference to the revision library. Took ages to sort that out.

Ideally, the message would be along the lines of:
corrupt library (invalid inode signature file)
     archive: address@hidden
     revision: engine--devel--7.6--patch-270
You should remove this revision from your library.

I think the whole thing would be simpler if errors were handled by returning 0 or similar. It's quite difficult to propogate useful error reporting state from libraries.c to relational.c through inode-sigs.c
