Jeff, I have used that snapshot, copied the spool and ran texpire. It
restored the hard links and filled my screen with the corresponding
messages in -vvv mode. I ran texpire again, and the 2nd time I just got
the normal output "group.name: n articles deleted, m kept", but no
restored links. What file system is the spool on?
