Hi Guy,

Just a wild guess..
I once had something which gave similar errors, when I had srs4 running
on two machines, with their indices on a shared disk. I had managed to
the order of the database sections different in the .sdl files for
those machines, so while it worked perfectly on one machine, it gave 
errors similar to the ones you got on the other machine.. 
So maybe that making sure that the order of the various sections is 
the same in the .i and the .sdl file can solve that problem...
