[messages] [Developers] Cleaning out the tiles directory

The only other thing I can think of is if there were a "last played"
date property of the module and tiles expire after some time (whether
hardcoded or user-preference settable).  But, quite frankly, I'm not
sure the issue is worth the effort especially where it's a v3.2 issue
only.  When I first reported it, I didn't realize I was running into a
corner-case of design intent.

Has anyone tried this with my module?  I'm going to go out on a limb and
speculate that the module probably has the largest map images of any
VASSAL module to date, so it would be a good stress test for V4
in-memory tiling.  The module is unreleased, but if anyone wants to test
how it "slices" in v4 I can make it available.
