File Server update

Remember that whacked out file server I mentioned in april? It turns out that my random file checker script magically fixes some problem with the server. When the script isn't running we start getting these wierd "file not found" messages. For some reason, everytime we fire up the script the message miraculously stop coming. If we stop the script the errors will start happening anywhere from several hours to several days later, but they always recur. If the script is running though, they never come back. Very bizarre.

Perhaps some cleanup/compress/something script starts on the server when it's idle for some time? It would follow that your random checker doesn't allow the server to be idle, so the problem is contained.
