pqact.conf problem

  Hi all,

  I'm trying to pipe some incoming data to a particular program using
LDM and the pqact.conf configuration file.

  I have copied over an EXACT copy of a file that works on another
operating system, but on my Linux system, I receive errors.  The error
looks like this in the logs:

Oct 05 16:03:00 storm pqact[30545]: pipe_prodput: trying again
Oct 05 16:03:00 storm pqact[30545]: pbuf_flush (4) write: Broken pipe
Oct 05 16:03:00 storm pqact[30545]: pipe_dbufput:
write error

  LDM appears to be merging together the PIPE command plus the file
information.  The entry in pqact.conf looks like:

  PIPE  /home/ldm/bin/nexradII_bz /home/ldm/data/nexradII/\2/\3.ridds

  As I mentioned, this appears to be a problem on Linux.  Does anyone
have any suggestions as to how to get around this problem?  I'm running
RedHat 6.2 and LDM 5.1.4.  Thanks!
