>Very strange, but looks like this is a problem in system's rc, as my rc =

Hi Boris,

The problem I haven=C2=B4t solved since February, when I met with him =
again by chance in July when dealing with another problem, a new =
multicast api in FreeBSD 7. I will write another report the following =
e-mail on multicast.

I found out that this strange number "[: 34978: unexpected operator" is =
not at all a number of lines of code, but it is PID!

It is a PID of daemon, which was running, but for some reason has been =
terminated, for example by signal 11 and an integral condition is that =
in /var/run/ quagga is the rest of the daemon, the pid file is opened.

So when a user runs /usr/local/etc/rc.d/quagga start|stop|restart so it =
just appears these nonsenses on some unexpected operators.

I can not repeat it because I do not know how to simulate freezing =
process expediently.

But I am sure that this is PID number, because in the list of running =
processes "ps aux" were two processes ospfd and one of them had the same =
number like the number in error message.

When I was killed the process with the number from error message and =
restarted quagga, the error message suddenly disappeared, it would lead =
to think that, between February to July the error unexpected end of the =
process become, and that I am, of course, it could not even see, and =
finally that it is rare phenomenon.

Very strange, but looks like this is a problem in system's rc, as my rc =
does not have 34978 lines of code :)
