Dave, Yes. It appears that LDM 6.13.0 has a problem running some scripts. I'm working on that now. > Steve, > > LDM v18.104.22.168 started without complaint and seemed at first to run normally. > However, a problem arose before very long that is fatal for us until we get > it resolved. The problem goes away immediately after I switch back to LDM > v6.12.13. > > Our pqact.conf file contains directives to run Bourne shell scripts upon > receipt of certain products (particular GFS and NAM and RUC model fields, > satellite images, and perhaps a few others).
