Thanks for taking the time to respond, it's much appreciated.

I'm on a tight deadline (made tighter by spending > 30hrs trying different 
FreeBSD installs, cvsups, etc), so going back to Beta4 and trying to figure out 
where it all went bad is my fall-back position. Currently, everything is running 
fine on Ubuntu 6 with no memory problems. Not my first choice, but, it is 
working, which is something my first choice is not doing :-7

Thanks again,
