Might be symlink troubles again, but this is what was in ~news/run:



> ls -l run
total 1
srwxrwxr-x   1 news     news           0 May 12 21:37 control
srwxrwxrwx   1 root     news           0 May 12 05:43 ctlinndaacmEa
srwxrwxrwx   1 news     news           0 May 12 03:15 ctlinndaawEva
-rw-rw-r--   1 news     news           5 May 12 21:38 innd.pid

> rm run/ctlinndaa*


I don't know why there would be a zero-length setuid root file 
in there.


Did 1.7 servers all over crash at dawn today or just mine?
