I am a bit confused by all of this. The code involved is DXHash.pm.

Essentially what happens is that when you add a word it will add the
word to appropriate hash and then serialise that hash (ie write it) away
to disc.

Unless there is a permissions problem, each set/badXXXXX will do a write
to disc, overwriting whatever is there.
