Sorr, I just wanted to make sure that we were not missing something
really simple.

OK.  I am on your machine and see see your ROUTE.SYS file getting corrupted.
I can only believe that this is being done by pnga2area.

I first suspected a big-endian/little-endian problem, but I reassured myself
that this was not the problem after looking at our ingest setup on
a Solaris x86 box.  On that machine, ROUTE.SYS is getting updated correctly
and PostProcesses are setup to run with no problems.

I am now suspecting a different bug in pnga2area.  Here is what I did:

o after noticing that your routing table was not setup for the CIMSS
  stuff I FTPed CIMSS.BAT from the pub/mcidas directory on our FTP
  server, ftp.unidata.ucar.edu (anonymous FTP).

o I created a local copy of DROUTE.BAT like I advise in my McIDAS installation

  cd ~mcidas/data

o I added the contents of CIMSS.BAT to the end of LROUTE.BAT

o I remade your routing table:

  cd ~mcidas/workdata
  batch.k LROUTE.BAT

o since you made a comment about compositing not being done, I knew that
  you did want to run the compositing ROUTE PostProcess BATCH files.
  To enable this, I RELeased the routing table entries for the composite

  cd ~mcidas/workdata
  route.k REL CI CV CW
  route.k REL N

After waiting around for a few minutes, I see that CIMSS data has come in
and ROUTE.SYS has been correctly updated:

So, I guess that pnga2area was stomping on ROUTE.SYS when entries for CA,
CB, ... CF were not found (bad).  I will have to verify this by looking at my
code.  Until then, you should be up and running.

Please let me know if the ROUTE.SYS corruption returns.
