| I logged into the box, acked the page, and did argusctl checknow
| argusctl was just sitting there, not responding
| I refreshed the web-page, and it eventually said that it couldnt connect
| to the server.
| i watched the log, and as fast as the tty could print it to me (26,635
| entries in 76 seconds), i saw:
| [2005/4/3 4:09:43] [17637] select failed: Bad file number
| if there's extra info i can provide, let me know.

does this happen often, or just once?

looking at the checknow code, if you do a checknow just
as argus starts the check on its own, something bad could
happen. now fixed in the current code, which I'll upload later
