I've run Circle on DEC's running 4.3 and 4.3a, and have had no problems
whatsoever.  The warnings pop up about localtime, but no other warnings
come up.  Look at where the warnings are occuring, and see if it's your
code or Circle's.  Also, look in hacker.doc for steps to use a debugger
to determine the exact line of code where the crash it occurring.

Looking at the "cant open syslog", check permissions on all of the directories
and make sure that if you have a quota, you are well under the limit.
