Thanks, but it's not over NFS. The problem was occurring on the last
server, different hardware and earlier versions of the same software. I was
surprised that it showed up again after the upgrade. I've had everything
from garbage at the top of mail files, to missing colons in the From lines,
to bad temp pop files... I think the dragon may be multi-headed, so I'm
looking for products that will be less quick to crash.
