It was something on your box, and you'll have to figure out what it was
that changed. 

You can follow the bugzilla report I submitted for clues as to what to
look for.  All I know is that I YUM updated my FC4 system and the
problem went away. I didn't care to look to see what component was
actually at fault. I don't really care. 

For me it must have been a kernel or related package because when I down
graded to an older kernel, the problem also went away. It was only with
the most recent kernel at the time and possibly whatever it drags in
that the problem manifested itself. After another kernel upgrade, the
problem disappeared.

Agreed. But by the same logic, NOTHING should ever fail. If by user
facing tools, you mean a vpopmail component, you must remember that
vpopmail like most applications uses libraries of object modules for a
good portion of its functionality. Those libraries sometimes evolve to
contain a bug of some sort, and then vpopmail inherits the problem.
