[McIDAS #XKM-786092]: Anotehr bug: ADDE server not working?

Hi Gilbert,

I logged onto weather2 a few minutes ago and saw that the files used by
the ADDE server for the RTWXTEXT dataset were not being updated.  I then
noticed that the DMMISC (dmmisc.k) data monitor was continually exiting.
Given this I decided to redo the XCD setup for the RTWXTEXT data:

<as 'ldm'>
ldmadmin stop

<as 'mcidas'>
cd ~mcidas/workdata
cd /home/data/mcidas
rm *.RA*
cd ~mcidas/workdata
batch.k XCD.BAT
decinfo.k LIST                  <- to insure that the appropriate data
                                   monitors were turned on (all except
                                   DMGRID, DMBIN, DMNEXR on weather2)

<as 'ldm'>
ldmadmin start

After doing the above, the data monitor DMMISC appears to be running
correctly.  We should be able to tell if the weather watch box
data is correctly being processed by XCD as the day progresses.

I also logged onto weather3 to check to see if its XCD data monitors
were running, and they were.  I am now seeing if a weather watch
plot works using weather3 as the ADDE server.  Hmm, it is not.
So, I did the same sequence on weather3 as I did on weather2 with
the exception of turning on the DMGRID data monitor (since it was
on when I logged on).

Again, we should know if these changes worked as the day progresses.
