Don't use "-T tools".  "tools" is an already existing directory in

It is possible to use the same directory for both purposes, but the
results will be confusing (with both sources and outputs mixed in the
same directory) and it's too easy to accidentally delete sources while
attempting to delete installed tools.

Thanks for your piece of advice. No use. With or without -T, with or without -r, same crash. :(

I don't think he meant to say "don't use -T".

He meant to say "when you use -T, don't use -T tools - pick some other
directory, like -T mytools".
