Thanks for the mail. One of my raid arrays was indeed
having a problem but was used for nothing more than
mp3 storage. I totaly discounted the idea that it
might be responcable for Cyrus's problems.... but it
was. If I bring the server up without that array
mounted Cyrus works like it's old self again.
Frankly I'm supprised that Cyrus had such a problem
when none of the other apps on the server even seemed
to notice. Thanks again for the push in the right
