[McIDAS #JGN-249914]: IMGMAKE



Hi Mike,

OK, I thought that Ryan had/was going to fix this.  I know I talked to
him about the previous situation where his ldm-alchemy python script
would put things in a TCONUS directory.  Putting files in a ECONUS
directory is likely a result of the same sort of oversight.

It is definitely a sorting issue.  Looks like I have to add more code to
do internal sorting of the list of files to be examined... sigh.

Thanks for the sleuthing!

We discussed Evan's email internally.  I just have not found the time
to reply to it properly.  Please let Evan know that it is on my list
of things to do.

Cheers,

Tom
