I ruled that already out. My script checks that this all is ok, and
re-running the script again without modifying something creates a
working map.
The next time I see this I will diff the resulting map (by the way,
do we store the date or anything else, which changes from build to 
build in the map?) and verify, that this is not again one of the 
caching problems of the 62s which bit me already more than once.
