The upgrade from dcc-1.3.122 (32 bit) to dcc-1.3.125 (64 bit) was
flawless.  However, we now have a problem with writes from dccd
saturating the disk.  The I/O bandwidth is often 100% utilized.
Other processes that need to read from the disk are stalling.

This is Solaris 10 5/09.  Neither `-F' nor `-f' are specified in
dcc_conf.  Can I add `-f' someplace to get memory mapped I/O?  Does
this have to be specified for dbclean separately?  Where's the best
