Yes, various times, SuSE 6.2 and 6.3 (don't have 6.4 yet).
It obviously doesn't always happen, but I could not track down when and
how. If I run the same command on the command lne (as is run by cron),
it always ran fine.

I just discovered the same problem on two of my computers (SuSE 6.4). What can I do to stop this?
