certain circumstanses [sic], if the directory containing your Log

recursion, eventually allocating all the memory in the system. The

Whoops, my mistake. I meant to say I *did* make the log file and its
directory readable and writable by the majordomo group and user
(actually, the user is majordom).
The wrapper appears to work fine (it passes the test). It could be

I'll look at the wrapper again, though if anyone else has any ideas,
I'd love to hear them. I'm not a Perl expert, so I'll take any help
I can get in debugging this problem.
