I wasn't aware of the meaning of the message, I just took it as an
error message. I installed your patch this summer, and it seemed ok,
but now we're having some heavy traffic on the webserver, and the
netware server is crashing every now and then. Unmounting the web
ncpfs after some days uptime is guaranteed to crash the Novell server.
