Homey smells a race condition.  I noticed after I sent that traceback
out it actually died on a different file than it had before.  So
started playing with it, just restoring the same directory over and
over again.  And sure enough, depending on the verbosity levels which
help change the delay I suppose, I could make it bomb on different
files, same general type of error.  Something to think about.
