Yeah! And this mistake is very easy to make.

I did a similar "woopsie" recently myself with Breaks / Replaces,
(which was quickly solved) even though I quite know what
I was doing, simply because I forgot about the epoch. Of course,
that made the Breaks / Replaces completely useless.

Though, is there a way to fix human brains? I don't think so...
Would having the epoch written in the generated file names
solve the problem? I don't think so either...
