Hi C?line

This is really weird.
Just to check, you are building using the Librarian Interface?
When you look in index/assoc/HASH... folders, there are no doc.pdf
files? (You know that the pdfs will all be saved under the name doc.pdf,
not the original filename)?

If you like, you could send me (off list, to kjdon @ cs.waikato.ac.nz)
two of your documents and a copy of your collect.cfg file and also the
rea.col file in the top level rea collection folder.
