email so that I can get them fixed up right away.
I believe I have these fixed.
a) Seems the script that creates the sendmail aliases moved with a
software upgrade, so my creation of a new list ended up removing all the

c) In my attempt to fix "b" before I realized the disk full problem I

They caused Apache to core dump in unusual places, which I wasted a day
trying to track down until I remembered that I had "upgraded" these
