Comment (by rhaas):

 Ah, let me see. I *was* modifying the file I had passed on the command
 line, however *that* file (a copy of einsteintoolkit.th in thornlists)


 which I guess causes GetComponents to overwrite its input when used as

 bin/GetComponents --root . thornlists/bnscomparison.th

 I would say it behaves as expected, I just did not know it was that
 powerful. It may require documentation. I think this ticket can be closed
 as "wontfix" since it does what it is supposed to do.
