zef: too many files in ~/.raku/short
Message ID:

I found out that on my system at a certain point zef was unable to read the
content of ~/.raku/short and because of that to install any other module.
According to zef there were too many files in that directory and indeed
there were a lot of subdirectories.

I don't know what happened, because I try to keep my installation lean and
I uninstall old versions of all the modules that I update.

Is it possible that zef failed to update that directory content when, I
don't know, a module fails to install or something like that, leaving
behind unused directories?
Has that happened to anyone else?
