20040806: New Aeolus May Not Happen


Sounds like your pqact.conf file has a typo.
If you have a bad tab (especially on a line by itself),
then pqact will stop reading pqact.conf at that point and not
process it further (I'm assuming that you do have pqact running).

please send your pqact.conf to address@hidden
