all vpopmail processes are short lived. If there is an open mysql connection for any reason for more than about 3 seconds, there's a bug. I would recommend upgrading to a newer version, as I believe this bug has been squashed. Then again, I would also recommend removing gentoo's qmail ebuilds and installing it by hand.. but that's a discussion for another day. -Jeremy -- Jeremy Kitchen ++ Systems Administrator ++ Inter7 Internet Technologies, Inc.
