You may find that finishing with a.flush() and a.close() fixes your problem.

Also, it appears that you're doing more than is required -- 
specifically, looping through filelist appending its members to allfiles 
can be done more simply with append, so where you're saying:

     filelist = [...

you could say


and forget about filelist entirely.
