Re: [Fedora-suds-list] Stale suds cache causing wsdl parser errors

As to how the cache became corrupted, I believe that I killed a
running process that was in the middle of parsing a WSDL at some
point.  I didn't make the connection between doing this and subsequent
parsing problems because the service's WSDL had changed recently; I
figured it was a malformed WSDL.

Thanks guys and nice work on suds.
