Ah yes.

I was just about to try this.  I suspect it will work just fine.  (see

Even worse, probably.  It turns out our library server and csma2
currently have identical hardware, so you can guess what kind of copy
happened on the re-build:  library server->access server, re-run
./UPDATE to change to access role.  A complete clear of /res, and a
re-run of ./UPDATE just for good measure seems to have fixed the problem.

Thanks for the right-on-target insight, as usual.
