Thanks, Marcus.
First try I got - translator died.
Second try - loads of:
default pager: dropping date_request of previous paging errors...

After a reboot, I had to manually run fsck - but seems OK now. Don't
know if this is significant but in Anacron job cron.daily mail for today
I found:

/etc/cron.daily/find exited with return code 127:
find: /dev/tty: Device not configured
find: /servers/socket/2: operation not supported

Before, and after ( just now) I can telnet and ftp (to Linux box) OK.
Perhaps a problem somewhere I need to sort out?
Thanks for help.
