Bingo! That did it. Now I'm sure there is a penalty for this, like two PCs 
hitting the same file at the same time, right? I'm willing to live with that 
for awhile.

I have the two debug 10 level log file, but one is on 2.07 and the other is 
after I put in the posix locking = no. I would think that the 2.07 might be 
of some use, but I'll understand if its not.

I guess the next step is to get 3.0.23 to compile on my AIX 5.3 test box, 
and run the debug 10 again but without the posix lock = no.
