I did not know... Thanks. I noticed that with Sun studio as well. I
have it running on my oi upgraded from opensol box so I guess I will
have to make sure not to bork that machine.
Since 4.2 has been flawless I will probably just leave my srss alone. I
bought my seats from sun so I don't even want to ask oracle how much it
would cost now.
