Your changes to the setiathome.sh startup-script now lead to shell
errors on startup -- missing quote. I added the quote, and hit another
error. I'll be sending you my update -- including the upgrade to 3.08
for FreeBSD in a separate e-mail. Please, take a look.
As far as the new start-up script, I'm not sure it is worth the extra
shells (per CPU) to run to automaticly restart setiathome if it exits.
Even if you are convinced, such auto-restarting is desirable (I'm not),
it should be one sleeping shell per machine -- not one per CPU, don't
you think? My dual CPU box has four setiathome-owned processes runing
instead of 3. Someone's 8-way monster will have 16 instead of 9 :-)
Finally, with the amount of shell scripting required for this, may be,
it would be easier to write the seti-helper in C?
