LDM 5.2 on RH 8.0

After getting LDM 5.2 to compile on RH 8.0. I am getting an error when
trying to start
LDM. ldmadmin complains:

%ldmadmin start
Split loop at /weather/ldm/bin/ldmadmin line 628


Does anyone have any idea what might be going on.  The line 628 seems
to reference the product queue, which was successfully created.

Thanks,

Mike Dross
