Coming back to this (see below) after over a year, to report that it is 
no longer an issue for us.

I never did get around to uploading the latest version of morewrites 
(suggested by Bruno below), but I did install the next texlive when it 
came out, which has the newer version (0.2e) of morewrites than the one 
I had been using.  That may have fixed the problem, but we also switched 
from bibtex to biblatex (the problem I originally reported was some kind 
of an issue between bibtex and (the older version of) morewrites).  So 
we're not using the same configuration that we were when we had the 

Thanks to Bruno for this package, and for responding to my original msg.
