20011005: pqact.conf problem

Jason,

The error log line has the spaces stripped out. This is not the problem in
pqact.conf.

If you are seeing write errors, you may not have created your directories
needed by your program. Remember, pqact will create directories needed for FILE.
But, if you are PIPEing data to a program, it is that program's responsibility
to make directories if necessary...or you have to do it for the program.
