Time, 
Yeah, my brain mills these things over and concludes
something very similar 
Alan. However two years? is that excessive? How long
does it take to rot down 
thoroughly? I've left woodchips on the truck
overnight and had them steaming 
thoroughly the next day. I heard ADAS were going to
do some research but then 
heard no more.

Now when it comes to spreading a freshly prepared
inoculum from an Armillaria 
riddled stump it sounds bad . . . 

It's quite possible for rhizomorph material to produce
hyphae and thereby colonise suitable resources.
Petri dish studies will demonstrate this.
If I can combine two replies here, look at Alan Rayner
and Lynn Boddy's work/books/publications. It's all
good stuff.
