without keyed logicals) not having its access path ready by the
time it was needed.
How could they possibly NOT expect that a program would be

Anybody have any suggestions on how to prevent this?
Have you thought about submitting the restore and repopulate jobs
into a single-threaded job queue? That would let the access paths get
rebuilt before you start putting data into the files.
Also, I hope you're sorting the data into the proper sequence ahead
of time to reduce the thrashing associated with maintaining the index
