Hello.  I have a level 10 log file for this error in action.  I wasn't
sure what the
relevent parts were, so the entire log (a little over a meg) is
available.  Rather

At about 08:15 this morning (near the end of the log file) this problem came
forward on the computer HR-STC-SHIFTSUP with IP  The user
that was logged in is VIRGINIADOT\roy.reid.  Any help anyone can give
would be appreciated.
