Basically, at the time, I put 2+2 together and made 7. The problem=20
wasn't with operator or save-entropy at all. There was a process=20
that maxed out the space when save-entropy ran, just at that=20
particular time, and then tidied up after itself. Fixed the process,=20
fixed the problem. Sorry for the noise!
