Thanks for your quick help!

The reason Alex and I asked you to do the above was so that we can
revert the LDM back to a pre-ldm--6.13.x version to see if the strangeness
we are seeing with the LDM-6.13.[34] installations is related to the
version or not.  It turns out that LDM-6.12.14 was installed on the
machine, but it was built/installed incorrectly, so we had to redo
the build for the test.  As you now know, one step in the LDM 
installation process requires 'root' access, and Alex does not have
the necessary credentials to do this one step.

What have we found so far?  Unfortunately, nothing definitive.  I
am hoping that reverting the LDM back to ldm-6.12.14 might shed
some light on what is going on.

One thing that just occurred to me that might (or might not) have
something to do with the strange behavior we are seeing with the
LDM-6.13.[34] builds is their being built in an environment where
LDMHOME is not defined.  In order to test to see if this makes
any difference, I would love to see the following tried:

<as 'ldm'>

cd ~ldm
ldmadmin stop              <- should already be stopped, but this can't hurt

-- edit the .bashrc or .bash_profile file and set LDMHOME as follows:

export LDMHOME

- make the LDMHOME setting active in the login:

export LDMHOME=/usr/local/ldm

- rebuild LDM-6.13.4

cd ldm-6.13.4/src
make distclean
./configure --disable-root-actions > configure.log 2>&1
make install > install.log 2>&1

<as 'root'>
cd /usr/local/ldm/ldm-6.13.4/src
make root-actions

<as 'ldm'>
cd ~ldm

rm runtime
ln -s ldm-6.13.4 runtime

ldmadmin start

This test should not take long; I estimate that it would take between
5 and 10 minutes.
