I know this is terribly late, but thanks for your report. I've fixed  
(2). Not sure how to fix (1) - I'd be grateful for any ideas from  

Not sure why (3) is happening. Unfortunately, I don't know enough  
about (4) to sort out.

For (5), I'd be interested in how coreutils does this (http:// 
www.gnu.org/software/coreutils/) because we use their routines to get  
the load average and I doubt if they insist on setuid root to allow  
this to happen.

Can I get access to an AIX server to test on?

1 out of 5 - pretty bad showing :(
