if this is true it is totally not what i expected.  very interesting!

i grepped through the source but i couldn't figure it out.  looks like a
question for toad.

1.  it seems i need to verify whether or not persistence = forever is
keeping a local copy.  sounds like it might not be.

2.  if there is some tight key space voodoo going on then maybe whip up
a script to check periodically if file foo is available and if not reinsert.

am i thinking about this correctly?  many thanks for suggestions!
