No - I copied everything into all the directories /tmp/a/,
/tmp/ab/, /tmp/abc/, ... etc, and then I ran
something like:

for i in /tmp/a* ; do cd $i; ./process.py foo.xml; done 2> /home/roger/errors

So I was always running from inside the directory where all the
files were, and saw the errors only in some cases.
