    The multwrite errors are gone. Thank you.

    I hesitate to bring this up but, after about 6 hours of using pre15+patch,
    named coughed up some errors, dumped core, and died. When I tried to see what
    was going on, I got some "No processes avalable" messages and then the system
    stabilized. I have never seen either of these things happen before. Normally,
    I wouldn't think it's IDE related but you never know.

    Also, your patch wants to go 9 lines earlier for me. I unpacked a fresh 2.2.13
    and applied all the patches and I get the same result. I don't know if it's

    method of empowerment, so the resources attack the problem of the
    win-win standards.
