Hello all,
    Thanks for the help with this one. Most replies pointed to the fact that
there was an 'stty' statement in the .cshrc file. This was moved to the
.login file and all works correctly now.
        Thanks to Earl Cooke, Charles Thornton, Brooke King, Charlie
Mengler, Dale Wright, Matthew Stier, Kevin Sheehan, Sanjaya Srivastava, Jay
Lessert, Kris Briscoe, Roger Fujii, Brett Lymn, Danny Johnson, Mike Busse,
Nickolai Zeldovich, Thomas Anders, and Stephen Harris.

Original Q:

Hello all,
    I get this error when I run 'at' jobs. Can anyone enlighten me on what
this refers to and how to stop it - the jobs all run correctly.
        Thanks, and I will summarize,
            Michael Cook
