    When i check for waiting jobs i get this message but only in abc50:

    *** util_c_07 - ABC50 jobs waiting for exec ***

    Segmentation Fault

    press return for main menu

    Though there can be other causes of Segmentation faults, one can be a large number of files which the process is trying to process. This is similar to KB 8192-429.

    The jobs which util c/7 is trying to display are found in the ./abc50/files/que_batch file.

    In this case, when I did "more que_batch", I saw a bunch of p_acq_14 jobs. The following grep showed that there were 577 such jobs:

    > grep -c p_acq_14 que_batch

    I saved this problem que_batch as que_batch.old (so you can look at it, if you like).

    Then, as suggested in KB 8192-429, I did

    > rm que_batch
    > touch que_batch

    to create an empty que_batch file.

    Finding that util c/3 was not stopping the lib_batch process, I did "kill -9 nnnn" (where nnnn was the process number I saw in util c/1) to kill the process. I was then able to start the batch queue normally with util c/2.

    I see that the $alephe_tab/job_list has 45 p_acq_14's which are supposed to run "W2" (Mon-Fri).
