Hi Chris,

I have seen this too, but not consistently.  For me, the error occurs only
near the end of a very large checkout using a 'universe' defining module
name.  The error does not exhibit during smaller module checkouts, and as I
said - it does not consistently show up even during the large checkouts.

I'm curious what you see as the difference between 'in a buld script' and
'by hand'.

My WAG at this point is that the error shows up only when my network is
under heavy load.  During periods of relative network 'quiet' (say, 15 -
40% bandwidth utilization), the large checkouts complete as expected.

HTH you in troubleshooting and developing a workaround.  I posted my
question (with details) about a month ago.  No reply yet, and the only
other mention to this in the archives was your message of 4-MAY-2001.  See
my message of 20-JUN-2001 RE: that.
