indeed, just checked out and the reason is pretty simple ;-)

- python 2.3 doesnt complain if dircache.listdir() execute on
non-existent directory.
- python 2.4 spit out an error and stop on the same situation.

now the problem is how to fix it. i propose checking for and make
necessary directories from Makefile, and that is clean enough. any
comment, Ian?
