    One way to rule out your local changes is to download one of the latest JARs and reproduce there.

    Can you reproduce with other characters in the same clan?

    I will experiment when I get a chance. If I recall correctly, I did see this on one other character at least once.

    I don't think anything would be affected but I should ask to be sure...if I use a jar from the builds page, none of my settings, svn installations, or anything else important will be affected or overwritten will they? IE, is there anything I should backup before trying that?

    It almost has to be something local to me...yet I am still baffled. Changing the ASWS setting seems almost to enable/disable the behavior. But other than that, I'm still clueless.

    If you're using Windows, then as long as the jar lives in your mafia directory, you should be fine. If you're using Linux / OSX (and probably other OSes), you don't even have to do that much.

    Good to have that confirmed. Thanks.

    Good advice...which I've followed once daily for years now (or my small scheduled .bat script has). But I wasn't certain if what I considered worthy of backup was the same as what mafia (may/may not) overwrite when unpacking a build that was other than my normal one.

That is somewhere between unusual and unlikely. I routinely build the latest jar and run and cannot recall losing anything.
    You just vehemently agreed with me

If I had to pick specific files that are NOT worth backing up, I would probably go crazy.

    And, aside from that - I also do another layer of backup on certain sensitive files (like ~/.kolmafia/settings) by commiting their state to local git daily ....
