Thanks; I've never really used document generation before, so I was not 
aware of this.

Something else I discovered when I tried to use a build script:

   * Add a script document/build producing an error
   * Execute "isabelle build -c -o document=false" for your session. It
     will obviously fail.
   * Remove document/build
   * Execute again "isabelle build -c -o document=false". It will fail
   * Completely remove the document_output directory
   * Execute again "isabelle build -c -o document=false". Now it will
     work again.

It seems that some tool in the build chain could be more aggressive in 
cleaning up stuff.
