And it did, for about 10 months :). I can't imagine a problem with the
initial databases wouldn't have surfaced during that interval.

I guess something else happened during the upgrade process that corrupted
the environment on all three systems. I can't think of what that might be;
but the problem happening right after the upgrade seems too coincidental. I
did not upgrade bdb, but I did upgrade a handful of other packages and the
kernel. I'm not sure how those would have caused a problem, just one of
those mysteries of life I hope won't happen again 8-/.

Thanks again for the feedback...
