Yes I didn't recall seeing anything either, but thought I would ask.

No I make my own RPM from the .Z. I have been using the same dcc.spec 
file for years now. I just change the version number in the spec file 
and then do rpmbuild -ba dcc.spec. Hence I am just doing a rpm -Uvh to 
upgrade. Until 1.3.26 this procedure worked flawlessly. To my knowledge 
the configuration is identical including dcc_conf and flod, etc.

No, I should have thought of this. I will give that a try, albeit it 
might not be until the weekend.

The kernel is 2.6.9-27.ELsmp. The motherboard is a Tyan Tiger S2466 MPX 
with dual Athlon MP 2800+ and 1GB PC2100 DDR SDRAM. I have an LSI53C1030 
and 4 Seagate ST336607LWs in a software raid 5 configuration.

I'll try turning on the debug and see what I find ... may just turn out 
to be something stupid I did. I didn't see that anybody else had a 
problem but I am somewhat baffled as to what I could be wrong.
