In addition, based on more info which has come out on the list, I agree with what Kyle has pointed out re: variable to tell org to ignore missing files. This needs to be referenced in the manual and the documentation for org-agenda-files. If nobody else has done it by the time I have finished my current priorities, I will put a patch together to add such references. This won't be for a couple of weeks. -- Tim Cross
