Strange thing happening here: I have slashd running and under it there a few tasks (one of them a random cartoon block, which is a very simple Perl script). Now here's the log entry and you'll see that after a few hours the task 'rand_cartoon.pl' just stops, although it's supposed to run on endless rotation. Does anyone know if I might have configured this incorrectly, or what's going on?

## that's where I tailed the log and saw that everything was on hold and so I recycled the daemon.
