Since yesterday, whenever I attempt 
"paludis -pi everything --continue-on-failure if-satisfied",
I get the following:

># paludis -pi everything --continue-on-failure if-satisfied Building target

When checking, "ls /usr/repositories/funtoo/profiles/package.mask", I get
># ls /usr/repositories/funtoo/profiles/package.mask
>funtoo  gentoo  sunrise

So the error text is true, it is a directory. But I thought that was allowed. 
So my question is: Is this a known issue with an easy-to-implement fix, or is 
this a bug that I should report with "paludis --info" and stuff?

Just some more info:

>paludis 0.36.1
