Fair enough. I'm still getting caught up, on the thread.

Maybe another "shot in the dark". But speaking of Servers. We
ran into trouble with a web server generating *enormous* error
logs -- a runaway script. The result was, even tho there was
far more than adequate space for the swelling log(s). Memory,
and eventually Swap usage, began to climb quite steadily.

Like I said; maybe a shot in the dark. But just thought I'd
mention it.
