| Hey All,

| programmer we where able to debug the core file, and found that the problem
| was with our active file. We have been using this file for about 4 years
| now, so it's big. It is so big that the Newgrouphashtable (NGH) which has a
| default value of 2048, was unable to contain it. We increased the size to
| 4096, and recompiled inn, and the problem was solved. 
| Has anyone else had this problem? And is there a way to prevent it from

Frans - what version are you running? And how big is your active?
