I must have been quite a bugger in an earlier incarnation, so in this 
life I'm
condemned to finalize some space bound original Xilinx Virtex FPGAs that
have been conceived a looong time ago.

That ISE10.1 software seems to store state deep in its dungeons like paths
to libraries on servers or signal names that pop up after being removed a
long time. ISE should be forbidden.

I now keep everything I need for a chip in a virtual XP machine, and
nothing else, and save the entire machine in regular intervalls.
There fit a lot of 50G machines on a 3 TByte external disk.
VMware is my friend.

regards, Gerhard
