I'm bewildered, too - but I'm working on getting unbewildered. It isn't as simple as interrupting things (at least, I don't think it is) - after reading this, I confirmed that a pile of files had evaporated. They've stuck around through several build attempts and have just evaporated again - for no apparent reason. I'm now keeping the output from the last several build attempts in the hope that I can spot wtf is going on...
