Yeah, that sounds like something has gone wrong. Could you 'ls' some of the
directories and see if there's anything obviously missing?

That also sounds like something is broken. While that is running, please look
at the 'Recent Uploads And Downloads' page in your tahoe node's web interface
(there's a link from the front "welcome" page): it should show at least one
download in progress (for an actual file download) or a "retrieve" (for a
directory listing). That should give you some idea of what the network
traffic is being used for.

Maybe that can help us track down why you weren't seeing any files appearing
in the target directory.
