Can you somehow reproduce that for sure? Maybe with a small profile, as
an example?

Which one? Is it always the same package, or not?

Not really. I have just checked my today's build, and none of the .files
are empty. But if it happens randomly to you, that doesn't have to mean

Maybe you could try increasing the sleep() time to 2 seconds? That's too
much, but it would help after few builds, to narrow down the problem.
