Hi Mark et al.,

 > Size of 'OUp250lib' old nohist_reseval: 139412 Size of new: 14184.   
 > overwriting.

No reason to be alarmed.

This is a debugging message sent by searchcat.pl, which is a script  
that has two purposes:

a) it collects metadata-information from all of the files published on  
your library server
b) it does consolidation on the dynamic metadata, in particular, the  
access statistics

a) works, but b) has a bug as it appears to throw away data every now  
and then. The message above is a debugging message which gets sent if  
the access statistics data file shrunk more than one could reasonably  
expect - in which case the consolidation gets discarded.

We seem to be unable to figure out what's wrong with b), mostly because  
most of the time it works fine. In version 1.0.1, we have simply  
disabled b) for now.

What's strange with these files, and where are they listed?
