: Yes, that is correct but those changes are not in trunk right now. We're

The point i'm trying to get at is that according to the initial comments 
in this thread, CREATE does *appear* to be creating new instanceDirs on 
the fly because of the mkdirs behavior as you mentioened -- my concern is 
that the way you worded your reply suggests that this is a fluke, and 
doesnt' work properly (ie: is everything properly initialized? does 
persistence work?) ... if that's the case, then untill it does work, we 
should propbably have an explict test for the instanceDir and fail if it 
doesn't exist.

On the other hand: if it already works, it already works -- and we should 
document it.
