I wonder if there is any connection with the fact that I had to reinstall 
CentOS on the server yesterday, as repeated power-cuts had depleted the ups 
until the system was trashed.  Most things are up and running again, but there 
is a problem with keychain, which I still have to resolve.  The permissions on 
the data directory are much looser (since it is shared with other users) so it 
could be an authentication problem.  I'll be looking into the keychain issue 
tomorrow.
