I'm getting the following error message:
>
>MAJORDOMO ABORT
>
>Can't append to /home/staff/spcl/majordom/Lists/slip: Interrupted system call
>

All of the permissions on the Lists/slip.xx files seem to be ok

This message is always accompanied by another message with the following 
line repeated hundreds of times:

shlock: open(">/home/staff/spcl/majordom/shlock.25633"): Permission denied 
at /home/staff/spcl/majordom/shlock.pl line 131.

The shlock.pl file has the following permissions:

-rwxrwxr-x  1 majordom listserv     6051 Aug  1 06:56 shlock.pl*

And the bad line is in the following section inside shlock.pl:
----------------------
do {                                                                        
        $redo_loop = 0;
        if (!open(FILE, ">$tempname")) {
            if ($! == $EEXIST) {
                print STDERR "file \"$tempname\" exists\n" if $shlock_debug;
                if (unlink($tempname) <= 0) {
                    warn("shlock: unlink(\"$tempname\"): $!");
                    return(undef);
                }
                $redo_loop = 1;
            } else {
>>>> line 131 >>>  warn("shlock: open(\">$tempname\"): $!");
                return(undef);
            }
        }
    } while ($redo_loop);  
----------------------------------

Any idea what is happening here. Where are the permissions bad?
Here is the permissions on the majordom directory itself:

drwxrwxr-x  9 majordom staff        1536 Nov 12 14:25 majordom/

Would I have to make it other writeable?

Thanks,

Steve
