And that won´t be fixed by this patch. The decompression targets also don´t 
rerun by default, if they are written correctly.

To "fix" that, you would is to add dependencies (and I don´t think we should 
even try).

No, it isn´t. You have to erase the expansion directories, which is even less 
straightforward than erasing the dot-files.
