    I have installed on 7 remote systems, Florida, N. Carolina, Georgia, Louisiana, Oregon, etc. I have scripts that run under roots CRON and when the systems first start everything operates great.

    After about 15 minutes the scripts loose ability to determine if they are already running by checking PIDs written to /tmp directory.

    The scripts use Perl's Proc::PidUtil to check if PID exists and is Still Valid / Running.

    Any Suggestions Greatly Appreciated
