Another infrastructure issue: GridSearch doesn't notice when SFTs have been updated. This just ports the check from MCMC, but along the way I noticed it had a bug for single-string path patterns.
-ported check from MCMC search -bug: for single-str SFT path, glob list comprehension was trying every single character
(I hope multiple merge requests don't cause headaches through gitlab...? Let me know if you prefer patches instead.)
