Such a timestamp of 0 on the whiteclnt.dccw hash table indicates that
the ASCII /var/dcc/whiteclnt file could not be parsed.  Dccm, dccifd,
or dccproc (if you used them) should be whining in the system log about
syntax errors or host namesfile that cannot be resolved in the whiteclnt.

That looks like the extra process present since 1.3.0 that restarts
dccm after obvious crashes.
