    Hi, just stumpled upon your blog, even thoug it only has two posts it seems very promissing, keep up the god work.
    I have approx. 20 years experience with Networker, and just got the error you are writing about. Never seen it before, so I googled for the error and found your blog.
    It appears that the error have been spottet from time to time over the last couple of years, so it is not release dependant.
