This is a new install of qmail; vpopmail etc.  vQregister was installed
after vpopmail; and has been recompiled a couple of times.

Other ideas?

It's likely your vpopmail version is newer (including the onchange
functionality to implement a skel) than the version that was used to
compile vQregister.  vpopmail 5.4 and below produce only static
libraries.  If you upgrade vpopmail, you need to recompile any programs
that you want to benefit from the upgrade.

Try recompiling vQregister and see if that fixes the problem.
