Well, I'm happy (and somewhat embarrassed) to say that after pretty much
a full day of playing around with different configurations, I've pretty
well determined that the cause of the main problem I was having seems to
be an acute lack of RAM... In converting a machine with 1G of physical
RAM into a dom0 with significantly less, I neglected to remove this from
=2E..and so the 'find' was causing a swapping-death-spiral. I removed
this, and increased dom0's memory by 64M for good measure, and I can now
run the daily job from the commandline. Here's hoping I can avoid the
overnight hang tonight. :-}
Thanks for your help.
