Yep...  It has to do with the failover script I wrote.  The 0-byte problem
has happened three times prior all at times like 15, 30 and 45 minutes past
the hour.  Your suggestion about the ldmfail routine made me check in the
crontab, which showed my failover script runs at 0, 15, 30 and 45 minutes
past the hour.  So a quick check of the script led me to the problem...
