Re: Repository destoryed at random on OS X using new DB, etc.

Hi Max, thanks for all the help and advice. I'll be suitably careful
in following it. However, my repository has died in this way twice
now, and neither time was there anything odd about the check-in
attempt except that it failed. No power failures, hung processes, file
system defects, nada. Now it's true that my Powerbook does hang
sometimes when it goes to sleep and I have to remove the battery (!)
to convince it to shut off and reboot, and these episodes have
happened in the time since my last check-in to this repository.
However, the repository wasn't being accessed anytime around the
failure, and there hasn't been any damage to other parts of the
system, so that seems unlikely to me.

Good luck!
Ian
