I'm not sure why this fails, but everyone else I have heard from that has
tried this has found that it has failed as well. *shrug*  Are all your
library files/directories writable by the group?

At VieMud, we use the same userid for everyone that has access to the
code and lib... and with unix (to the best of my knowledge), you can
only have one passwd per id, and also, the more passwds you have for
soemthing, the easier it is to break one. (=
