I had the same problem with signify (which is not on ports). My fix for it was to force open() to open the file for both read and write (signify is a Perl script). I can send the patch if you need to see what I actually did. Fred -- "Death is only a state of mind. Only it doesn't leave you much time to think about anything else."
