!) Several local users of gerards distribution .exe (1.8b) have
had problems with severe "terminal mailjam".
I relay some of this feed to local amprnet users.. when i
returned from a brief trip to the great white north i had
56 queued messages that caused gri-NOS to lockup the first
time the SMTP timer kicked. I finally had to nuke the
entire queue to get the pipes unclogged!
Is there a tweak of the parms that would stop this from
happening... or is this a "feature"?
!!) There also seems to be at times a tremendous delay with
loss of kbd control (and sometimes screen) when NOS is
doing a domain lookup... this seems to last anywhere
from a minute to infinity with no rhyme or reason. It
really puts ripples in my WA when I have to
three-finger-salute the machine to regain composure...
(BTW -- this is mess-windows independent... (for a
change!!!) but appears less likely to occur if i rip
all LIMS/HIMEM garbage out of config.sys...)
Any other folk see this???????
