Quite possibly, since I've just tried it and it works for me. ;)
Try that Ashley - cut the "if empty? file-list [....]" code right out
of the original parse-dir-list and see what happens...
Has anyone sent RT feedback about this? As it does seem as though
parse-dir-list could attempt to close the same port twice, right?
Which at least shouldn't happen, never mind the rest of the code,
