The data and size of the /dist/replica/plan9.log file is 12/3/2007 and 2107
kb.

Thanks for your help! I'll try a newer CD image.

On the CD, what is the date and size of the file /dist/replica/plan9.log ?

It sounds like you got a CD that was made during the recent
problems with the pull log. I just did a pull and the current
log appears to be okay. Perhaps grabbing a new CD image
will solve the problem.
