Dear Gurus,

THANK YOU! You have not only solved my problem, but gotten my boss to
approve Sun Software support!

The problem was:

The answer is to get and install patch 102416-01 for Sun 4.1.4.

The patch is NOT available at the normal public repository for
recommended and security patches:

cache be plentiful, and may your scripts all have happy endings.

Many thanks.
