I am not using HTML. I am sending it using Thunderbird v1 as text via
the gmane server. Is this a Yahoo group thing?

I am not sure how/when it happens. How do you get the perror value from
a debug session? Anyway, I shall let you know when it occurs again.

I agree that preventing f == 0 is the right way to go, but I don't yet
understand why it is being set to 0 in this case. My feeling is that is
is being set to EMFILE since it does not occur predictably.

BTW, I am running in a bash 2.05 shell with command lines like:

bjam debug msvc-7.1 | log --echo

where log is my bjam to XML log generator.
