Peculiar error

    I just recieve the most peculiar error message that ended with
an abort signal which shutdown the mud.
The error is denoted in the syslog as follows:

SYSERR: CHECKPOINT shutdown: tics not updated

  While i can understand the concept of shuting down the mud if the tics
aren't updating themselves, i don't understand how it happened.  Gdb
told me absolutely nothing.  My gut tells me that this was either a 
machine error or an OS error.  Am i correct?
