Rbutil (not svn version but downloaded from site) does work when I
check to create .talk files for each file. However, I only want this
for each directory name - what could be gonig wrong here? When I click
to create the .talk files recursively for just directories the
progress bar jumps straight to 100% and claims that it has finished,
when in fact there is no real output to speak of.
