Are you sure you are looking into the right GRPCHG file? If you have quoted correctly, there seems to be a tab or a lot more spaces before the dash than in the print statement.

You might check the time stamp of the GRPCHG file to see whether it was written at the same time as the TEST file. If the time stamp is wrong, you might have accessed an old file that was never deleted and a bug in the way the filename is constructed (check $homeDir if it really contains what you think it contains)

    Thanks! I have a clean_up script that removes all files. They are created on the same run, but it would be interesting to see if the time stamps have some disparity, indicating the incomplete one stopped being written out to.
