Sorry to follow up to my own message, but I found another piece of the

smail's paniclog file:

09/29/96 09:09:44: [m0v7Hse-000Cu6C] cannot open /var/log/smail/logfile:
File table overflow

09/29/96 09:09:44: [m0v7Hse-000Cu6C] cannot open /var/log/smail/paniclog:
File table overflow

Smail is my mail transport agent.. I presume I ran out of filehandles or

#!/usr/bin/perl -i\$q='$q',\$p='$p';eval\$q.\$\^I\n"# #
$q='print"$p$^I\n',$p='#!/usr/bin/perl -i';eval$q.$^I # Joey Hess
"true - do nothing, successfully" - - true (1)
