Rebooting every day certainly is an option, but for free I can just 
change the tape before it fills up.  Ever since I put NetBSD on an 
old Quadra to act as a mailserver and listserver (92 days straight 
uptime), I've gotten less pleased and less patient with the problems 
with Retrospect and ASIP.   They both play nicely by themselves, but 
can create a whole heap of troubles when combined.  It also seems 
that most folks have absolutely no problems with the combination, 
which makes me less comfortable with the server and a little 
resentful that I'm having the problems.
