Different OS. I am running Linux with FedoraCore 5. I think its
java incompatibility and/or mysql issues with Federal Core 5. The php-mysql
and a lot of other subsystems were changed in the Linux distros due to
issues with the MySQL code moving forward.

That's a stretch to say, since we are dealing with different OS's. I
have purged out
the endb database completely and I am re-running the entire mwdumper
test with Rob's
UPDATE suggestions again. The previous database had data leftover from
run. After the test completes, I will post the results. I am farily
certain mwdumper has some
incompatiblity problems with the stock Linux Distributions as it has
been reported in a lot of places.
Since more people run Linux than BSD at present, it bears looking into
and getting fixed
and/or understood. I am happy to devote time to getting to the bottom
of it for Rob
