Sequence error

Rodney is getting sequence errors when he tries to print reports on the poll book.  To be explicit, he transfers results via floppy from each of the ballot stations in the vote center using "transfer results".  On the poll book machine, he then does a "poll book - options - report - load data", then "print totals report".  Before load data, the poll book already has a results folder with the brs file for sequence one.  That folder gets created when the election is started on the poll book.  If he deletes the file before doing the load data, then he doesn't get the sequence error.
For now, use this procedure when setting up poll books:  download from GEMS using the Poll Book unit, and then delete the contents of the Results folder.  Poll books do not contain ballots of their own, so they shouldn't have brs files.  Right now this is hard to "fix" because the AccuVotes-TS units don't really know they are a poll book or ballot station currently;  we'll try to come up with something reasonable.
