Yes, there's definitely a problem with the "-overwrite" option of the
FILE and STDIOFILE actions of the pqact(1) utility. I believe I have a
solution but I want to test it some more before releasing it.

Here are my two pqact.conf entries, with the goal of saving all products

my nalarm alert directory. These worked fine up until installing 6.5
What I'm noticing is that I am getting very large files in the
/gempak/alarms directory from the first entry (i.e. they are not overwriting
but appending) and not getting any products at all in the second directory.
