Post your storage config and version of the application and o/s. Did you 
build all the parts of this at the same time from the same source? I 
haven't seen anything like this, but the first thing which came to mind 
was bizarre behaviour when I was working with a Linux system and someone 
tried to use the package which came with the distribution after build a 
standard version from source.
