This is exactly what I tried, I had a log file of 1,5Gb, tried to
search in the source code where it went wrong, etc.
But indeed I can't give you a "reproducible test case",
at home I can't reproduce it, only at work with XX computers,
with many silly users who just turn the computer off in the
middle of whatever-program (which I suspect is the source of
the problem). I hope you want to re-read that post, and tell
me how I can help (I still have the 1,5Gb log). I also wanted
to change stuff in the source and see if it helps*, but it was a little
bit too risky because when things go wrong, many users can't work
so I wanted some "expert advise" at it.
