	very good idea:  I find the negative read "interesting"
	and would like to know more.  If your truss supports
	teh -d date option (not the old -d, which did something else),
	turn that on and get a timestamped packet capture, so
	we can line up packets with log entries and trusses.

	Very!  Feel free to send me lareg datafiles
	for correlation and selection, for the convenience
	of the team.
