I'm havin trouble running afbackup (port version afbackup-3.3.5_2 ), the backup
starts normally and seems to run fine until it's time to change the tape. The
tape is ejected but then the client looses the connection.

Fri Oct 24 22:47:16 2003, Error: Connection to client lost. Exiting.
No $home variable set.
"~/.mailrc": No match.
Null message body; hope that's ok

I've tested the streamer/tapes using tar and dump and everything seems fine, the
same streamer was in use attached to a linux server before and afbackup was
used on the linux machine as well - without any problems (same version).
I would really like to continue using afbackup, so I'm willing to experiment if
someone makes some reasonable suggestions ;) .
Thanks in advance,

Alexander Kuehn
